Kingwood Free Community Training (April 2018)

March 27, 2018

FREE SATURDAY COMMUNITY TRAINING – Kingwood Clinic

We have scheduled our next FREE Saturday community training for our Kingwood clinic! Our April training will go over the basics of stereotypic behaviors and some strategies for managing them.

Understanding and Managing Stereotypic Behavior

Stereotypic behaviors, sometimes referred to as self-stimulatory behaviors, are repetitive or ritualistic behaviors  such as hand flapping, body rocking, or lining items up. Though all individuals may engage in some form of stereotypic behavior, they are more common with individuals diagnosed with autism. When these behaviors occur frequently or at inappropriate times they can interfere with social engagement and skill building or be socially stigmatizing. Additionally, some of these behaviors can be dangerous to the individual engaging in them or others in their environment. Despite how common these behaviors can be, they are often very difficult to address. This presentation will cover the basics of what stereotypic behaviors are, why they may occur, and some available approaches to managing stereotypic behaviors.
