The focus of this presentation is to help parents whose children have limited language skills, making it difficult for them to understand why their usual routines have been totally disrupted by COVID-19. The idea is to provide some simple “tools for your toolbox” to help family members prevent and/or reduce the occurrence of problem behaviours by setting realistic expectations, communicating clearly, and establishing structure and routines to get through the day.
The presenters are both Board Certified Behavior Analysts who teach in the Applied Behavior Analysis Program at Capilano University. Specialists in Positive Behavior Support, they have many years of experience in working directly with families to help them improve family routines. This presentation is relevant to those on the autism spectrum, as well as those with intellectual disabilities generally.
