  • Preventing and Responding to Challenging Behavior

    Thursday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Bladen County Smart Start, 228 W. Broad St. #B, Elizabethtown

    When we experience challenging behaviors in an individual with ASD, one of the first questions we should ask ourselves is, “What is the individual trying to communicate with this behavior?” What want, need, confusion, or fear is the individual trying to express?
    This approach can lead us toward strategies and meaningful behavior change.

    This workshop with our clinical professionals will offer strategies that families and professionals can apply to prevent problem behavior and to build better behavior.
