Understanding Challenging Behaviours

In this workshop we cover information that will help you to understand and manage your child’s challenging behaviours using the principles of applied behaviour analysis (ABA).

Does your child exhibit challenging behaviour that is hard to manage? It can be hard to know what to do when your child has challenging behaviours that interfere with learning, functioning in their daily routine, or developing positive social relationships. You may even feel worried that your child might hurt themselves or someone else. Sometimes children have challenging behaviours and it’s hard to know why it happened or what to do about it. In this workshop, we will discuss types of challenging behaviour and the ABCs of behaviour so that you can understand why your child may be having challenging behaviours. We will discuss how you can use this information to develop strategies to reduce those challenging behaviours.

We look forward to sharing this information with you to increase your and your child’s success!
