This conference will focus on children and youth with autism spectrum disorder, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, and related neurodevelopmental syndromes, who exhibit challenging behaviour such as aggression and self-injury.

This interactive three-day conference will provide perspectives from the behavioural field, psychiatry, and education.  The first two days will specifically focus on the importance of aligning behavioural analysis with intervention, and will provide skill-based, validated treatment processes for addressing challenging behaviours.  The third day will focus specifically on self-injury.

Our goal is to help clinicians and caregivers learn effective ways to work with individuals and their families, to improve their quality of life experience.  The conference will also provide educational and informative behavioural updates specific to individuals with neurodevelopmental syndromes, and showcase effective practices in the field.  This conference will engage health care providers and educators from a wide range of professional disciplines in knowledge transfer and interdisciplinary collaboration.
