Sensory AND Behavior: Determining the underlying causes and addressing difficult behaviors appropriately
When difficult behaviors arise in children with sensory processing disorders, we often ask ourselves if the behaviors are sensory OR behavioral in nature. However, experience shows us that the answer is usually both—sensory AND behavioral. This 2-hour webinar includes research to support this approach and a case study.
- Discuss the ABC method of behavior analysis.
- Delineate proactive and reactive strategies to address difficult behaviors.
- List a minimum of three environmental adaptations to minimize antecedents for behaviors.
- Select cognitive strategies to address certain behaviors.
- Recognize the role of sensory strategies in minimizing maladaptive behaviors.
