Challenging Behaviour
(including reciprocity, attachment, shame, and bids for attention)

Children who overreact /are not maximising their potential.  Understanding, sensing and changing disruptive behaviour. We are fortunate to have a very experienced retired educational psychologist co-presenting at this and several more sessions.

Sensory needs and Autism - can you have one without the other?

Friday 24th January

 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SENSORY ISSUE, e.g. sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell, interoception, proprioception, balance, etc? Is my child over- or under-sensitive and how can you be both?

Is there an effective alternative to punishment? Which praise is effective in eliciting better behaviour? 

Friday 31st January

How can I control the children if I don’t punish/ reward them? Strategies to gain compliance by connection rather than coercion/ bribery.  

Resilience/Self-Esteem and Anxiety

As anxiety is at the root of so many behaviours, anyone wanting a greater understanding of these would benefit from attending.

 

How can I increase a child’s thinking/remembering power?

Friday 14th  

February

 

Discussions will include auditory processing / working memory / executive functioning.

If your child is frustrating you, this could be the cause – come along and find out more!
