All children demonstrate challenging behaviors but for children with special needs, who have additional difficulties understanding and communicating, challenging behaviors can be extremely trying events for parents and caregivers. Even though the challenging behaviors are not appropriate or functional for the child, the behaviors are serving the child somehow, and it is important to understand the function of the behaviors for the child in order to determine how best to intervene. This presentation will highlight some simple behavior strategies which can help parents and caregivers to analyze the functions of challenging behaviors for a child and to determine the most effective way to respond.

|5:30pm- 6:30pm||Social hour (food/wine will be served)|

Partners Resource Night is a free training opportunity for parents, caregivers, professionals, and others. This event is designed to provide participants with the tools necessary to manage situations they encounter with children. This is an interactive and informative opportunity to learn more about autism spectrum disorder and its impact on children and their families.
Prior to the presentation, we host a social hour from 5:30pm- 6:30pm. Parents, family members, professionals, and Partners’ staff are encouraged to mingle and meet others who have a connection to autism. One of the great benefits to attending Partners Resource Night is sharing experiences among families and caregivers.
Partners Resource Night is an exciting, supportive, relative, and educational experience for all who attend. These evenings will be informal and enjoyable and we encourage everyone to participate. Childcare is not provided for these events. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
