Learn how to see beyond behaviour to understand communication needs. Explore ways of responding through sensory activities, movement, sounds and rhythms in order to provide person centre responses.

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is suitable for those working with children or adults who have challenging behaviour, learning difficulties (including autistic spectrum condition) and no or limited language.

What prior knowledge or experience is needed?

No previous experience or knowledge is required for this course other than working with children or adults with limited communication skills who show signs of challenging behaviour such as self-harm, aggression, non-compliance or oppositional defiance.

Summary of the course

Many children and adults can only communicate by using their ‘behaviour’ which sometimes can be anti-social, 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 integration, music, play and drama techniques to help provide person-centred responses.
