Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has put together some resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current Coronavirus outbreak.
Is your child disruptive in the classroom — virtual or physical? As an educator, do you correct or punish the same student repeatedly? Too often parents and educators are burned out and frustrated by a student’s interfering behaviors, which can cause school exclusion and reduced social and academic opportunities.
Better behavior doesn’t always happen quickly or easily, but a comprehensive Positive Behavior Support Plan (PBSP) provides the starting point for constructive behavior change. The PBSP outlines a pathway toward understanding and changing a student’s interfering behavior(s) using research-based strategies and tactics. An individualized plan focuses on prevention, skill-building, and redesigning the environment — not the student.
