Through my behavior career I have seen the absolute worst strategies used with autistic children. This workshop will talk about how a neurodivergent brain works, what we need to know to help them be at their best, and strategies in LOVE. We will talk about ABA, relationships, planned ignoring, alexithymia, sensory pieces, compliance and reward systems, autistic burnout, what needs to be in an IEP, eye contact, attention seeking language, person first language and the puzzle piece. I made this workshop an extra half hour because this information is critical in today’s education system. We need to be LOUD for LOVE to help autistics succeed!
