This easy-to-access online workshop focuses on Promoting Positive Behaviour and Positive Behavioural Support (PBS). Learn at your own pace about the causes of challenging behaviour in the classroom, investigate the triggers and implement preventative interventions.
What does this course cover?
Supporting teachers of Deaf learners who have neurological conditions such as Autism.This course provides an overview of how the impairments affecting learners with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (Autism/Asperger) and/or ADHD may cause them to behave negatively (this is also very useful for understanding a range of learners' needs including Deaf and neurotypical). It examines of the root causes and triggers behind negative behaviour and how to identify and avoid them.
What outcomes can you expect from this course?
Completing this course will help you to develop strategies and interventions for adapting your sensory environment to meet the behavioural needs of a range of learners.

- Work more effectively with a range of learners.
- Gain knowledge and understanding of the conditions and therefore identify triggers to negative behaviour.
