KINGWOOD FREE Saturday Community Training (July)

June 18, 2017

Kingwood FREE Saturday Community Training (July 8th, 2017):

We have scheduled our next FREE Saturday community training for our Kingwood clinic! These trainings are free and open to the public. Our July training will discuss tolerance programs for kids with aversions to events or activities.

Helping your Child to Develop Tolerance to Activities, Events, and Items

Children diagnosed with autism often display extreme aversion to a variety of stimuli, including certain sounds, tastes, textures, and activities. When presented with the aversive stimuli children typically display maladaptive behaviors. As a result, parents frequently avoid taking their child to settings that trigger these behaviors. This can include avoidance of common activities such as haircuts, trips to the grocery store, dental or doctor visits, or other routine events. The most effective behavioral procedure used to treat these aversions are tolerance programs, or systematic desensitization. During this presentation, we will discuss how to use behavioral principles within a tolerance program to decrease aversion and increase the ability tolerate aversive environments.
