The Low Arousal Approach emphasizes a range of behaviour management strategies that focus on the reduction of stress, fear and frustration and seeks to prevent aggression and crisis situations. The low arousal approach seeks to understand the role of the ‘situation’ by identifying triggers and using low intensity strategies and solutions to avoid punitive consequences for individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

The Low Arousal Approach enables practitioners to avoid punitive consequences for individuals from a variety of settings through early identification and intervention using low intensity strategies and solutions.

Studio III Canada Training Systems provides a non-aversive approach to challenging behaviour. Studio III offers criterion-based training, working with staff to develop specific skills to meet the particular needs of the service user.

It is essential that the background to the service user’s problems is understood by all staff and that this understanding is used to define the direction in which these problems may be addressed.
