Understanding The Low Arousal Approach for Behaviour

Understanding The Low Arousal Approach to Behaviour with Gareth Morewood 

 

This course looks at why we shouldn’t be talking about behaviour, and why we should be talking about stress. The low arousal approach enables professionals, carers and family members to deal and manage challenging behaviours. The approach empowers the individual or team to focus on the ‘person’ in the situation, identify causes and use proven low arousal skills to reduce the aggression. This approach acknowledges that stress is an ever present part of the lives of people with autism, and asks how we can best manage crisis situations where the individuals we support may be experiencing ‘meltdown’. 

Gareth Morewood is an experienced SENCO and author and is currently the Educational  Advisor for www.studio3.org

Relationships & Sex Education For Autistic Young People

The new statutory framework for Relationships and Sex Education comes into force in September 2020. This course will equip you to develop programmes and resources that will enable autistic and other SEND pupils to engage in this subject in ways that are accessible and meaningful for them.  

For many autistic pupils, Sex and Relationship lessons are confusing, overwhelming and full of ambiguity. They may struggle with the way you explain sex and relationships, and struggle to make informed decisions, stay safe and develop good self-esteem unless information is presented in a way that makes sense to them. Autistic pupils often need a more personal and adapted approach to learning about relationships and growing up.

 
Who is it for:

Primary, Secondary and Special school staff.  Parents and other agencies who work with autistic children and young people.
