Program Description

This presentation is designed to help parents and professionals develop a practical, step by step approach to help pre-school/elementary age children, identified with ASD and challenging behaviors, become “Famous for Something Else.”  Participants will learn about effective goal planning, how to deal effectively with attention seeking behaviors, how to manage self control and how to use redirection successfully.  Most importantly, the focus will be on putting “fun” back into teaching children.
