Parent Training Workshop – Managing Challenging BehaviorsThe challenges families face when they have a child with behavior issues can be daunting. At Autism Partnership (AP), we believe that parents do not have to struggle with these challenges alone and through the years we have journeyed as well as trained parents and caregivers and by doing so we ‘reaped the fruit’ of this partnership when the child’s behavior was much improved and even eradicated. Certainly, parents can send their child to schools or treatments to help with addressing behavior challenges but very often they do not get transferred to the home environment until the strategies in addressing the issues are also applied at home. This is why it is important that parents get the support and be trained to manage their child’s behavior issues, as that will then spearhead the child’s development and growth. During this workshop, parents will learn practical skills to manage a targeted behavior ranging from acting out behaviors like tantrums, self-aggression, to passive behaviors like engaging in self-stimulation and a lack of response.
