A forum of intervention techniques and strategies for challenging situations involving individuals with Autism and Mental Health Issues



This training will serve as a follow up to the Overwhelming Moments training that Cyndy McKinley provided in Spring 2018.  Overwhelming Moments (Part II) will provide more in-depth training in intervention techniques for specific challenging situations while supporting individuals with Autism and Mental Health issues.  Such as:

·         Motivation and engagement. What can staff/providers say or do to alleviate fears and foster participation?

·         Perseveration that gets in the way of an individual participating in a group environment.

·         Dysregulation in public situations – at the restaurant, store, etc.

·         Individuals who leave the site, especially when out in the community at a group event.

·         Inappropriate sexual behavior… as well as appropriate dating tactics – not staring at someone or continuing to ask for dates after receiving a “no” response.

·         Working with families.
