We must first understand what makes a behavior challenging/distressed before we can begin to bespoke any intervention. We will then learn how to measure behaviour and look at the functions of behaviours both from an individual and relational level, and learn how to ask questions to determine that function. The next part of the workshop will learn how we can begin to assist individuals in learning how to work with distressed behaviours by improving some supports before looking at the principles behind developing behavioural interventions. We will then look at specific behavioural interventions, where the principle of behavior will help us decide how we can make adjustments so that the strategies can be tailor made to suit the individual. We will also explore the importance of how our stress levels can impact other people’s behavior, and how we can use the principles of behavior to support an individual develop a confident sense of self. We will also look at how we can help the individual learn strategies to maintain low levels of stress within themselves to encourage them to have more control over their own behaviour.
The Empower project is a Big Lottery funded initiative through the Reaching Out Supporting Families Programme  which support Families across Mid Ulster and Antrim & Newtownabbey Council areas.  The focus of the project is to support children under 12 with Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia, their parents and the wider family circle to enhance confidence and learn together to develop skills to support their children.
