Hi, I'm Steph Reed, an Autism Specialist Teacher and Consultant
I'm going to help you understand behaviour and how to teach children to regulate their emotions
Emotional regulation is the ability to recognise and respond to our emotions.

Many autistic individuals experience difficulties in identifying and describing their own emotions.

In this course, we will explore emotional regulation and how to support children to begin to identify and respond to their emotions in a way that helps them, rather than resulting in challenging behaviour.

When we see behaviour that challenges, a child is communicating something.

All behaviour has a purpose.

To understand behaviour further, we will look at the main functions of behaviour and why a child may be behaving the way they are.
This helps us to identify and implement strategies to help and support them.

After the course, you will have a good understanding of how to support emotional regulation development and strategies to understand, assess and support behaviour.
