Event description
The Canadian Conference on Developmental Disabilities and Autism presents Dr. Jed Baker, the director of the Social Skills Training Project.

About this Event

Individuals on the autism spectrum and those with behavioral challenges often present with difficulty regulating their feelings and interacting socially.

This workshop describes how to handle meltdowns and design effective behavior plans to prevent these moments and reduce frustration and anxiety.
