DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2019--

The “6-Hour Virtual Seminar on What to do after a Autism Meltdown: Effective Practical Strategies for Prevention, Intervention and Instructional Consequences in Children and Adolescents” webinar has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.


When working or living with a child/adolescent with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, meltdowns may occur that may be a result of sensory overload, cognitive overload or due to inability to self-regulate emotions.

This full day seminar will provide many practical hands-on strategies to:

  • Increase positive and acceptable behavior while decreasing undesirable behaviors
  • Prevent meltdowns, tantrums, rages
  • Provide suggestions for instructional consequences and self-management techniques to help prevent another melt-down
  • Provide a system of visual supports throughout the day
  • Demonstrate how to use high focus and interest areas as incentives
  • View videos and demonstrations using these techniques
  • This information and fun-packed seminar is designed for parents, educators, therapists and all those who are interested in providing supports to children/adolescents with an ASD, ADHD, behavior disorders or other disabilities.

Why You Should Attend

Do you work with children or adolescents with autism who exhibit behaviors that interfere with their ability to effectively and efficiently navigate their environment? They may appear willful, obnoxious, overreactive, anxious, or unfeeling or withdraw. They may lose control of their ability to cope or regulate their behavior which can send them spiraling into a meltdown. You may feel helpless, frustrated, and powerless after each meltdown.

Drawing on 45 years of experience and research based strategies, Kathy will lead the viewer with many practical strategies to prevent the meltdown, as well as intervention strategies and how to address post-vention strategies. Many videos demonstrating the examples will be presented to help support and demonstrate the strategy.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the stages of a melt-down
  • Distinguish between a meltdown and tantrum
  • Differentiate between punitive consequences and instructional consequences
  • Brainstorm an instructional consequence as a result of a behavior
  • Identify whether statements about autism are myths or facts
  • View practical strategies for Social Stories, Power Cards, t-charts, keychain rules, reminder
