Phoenix, AZ - United StatesOct-27-201810:30 am

Date: October 27, 2018 Time: 10:30am - 12:30pm Price: $25 per person / $40 per couple Location: SEEDs for Autism, 3420 S 7th St, Phoenix, AZ 85040 This interactive educational lecture is for parents, guardians, loved ones and/or caregivers for those on the autism spectrum. Everyone gets frustrated sometimes, but for young adults and adults on the autism spectrum it can cause non-functional behaviors, such as yelling, eloping, or shutting down. We’ll discuss a behavioral technique called Redirection, which is often confused with “giving in” when not used properly. Parents and loved ones of adults and young adults (14+) on the autism spectrum will be taught how to use Redirection properly to increase the independence of their children and loved ones. After participating in group activities, role-playing, and a question and answer segment, participants will walk out feeling confident in the strategies they have learned!
