Behavior Management of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Overview Core Courses

Introduction

This course is specially designed for parents, professionals, and students who are working in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder. For parents, the aim is to equip them with the skills of behavior management that make them independent in managing their children in a home setting. This two-month certificate course will provide hands-on practice to use the behavioral management techniques under constant monitoring of the experts. The participants will also learn about behavior modification and teaching a new desirable behavior. Handling the difficult behaviors that autistic children can display is a challenge for parents, and can be extraordinarily stressful. But new research shows that teaching or "training" parents and professionals on how to better manage these behaviors can make a big difference in the children's everyday functioning.
