Many children and adults can only communicate by using their 'behaviour' which sometimes can be anti-social or challenging or causes further barriers to making contact with others. This course will explore how we can see beyond behaviour to understanding communication and the needs of the person. The course will also explore ways of responding through sensory activities, movement, sounds and rhythms. The course will develop techniques associated with intensive interaction, Sherbourne movement, sensory intergration, music, play and drama techniques to help provide person centred responses.
Who should attend?
This course is suitable for those working with children or adults who have challenging behaviour, learning difficulties including ASC and no or limited language.
