Supporting Positive Behavior in Children and Teens with Down Syndrome:
Behavior problems impact 30% of children with Down syndrome. Left untreated, these same children often exhibit behavior problems as adults, limiting work and independent living opportunities. Many behavioral management tools are less effective for children with DS. This workshop will present the basic neuroscience of Down syndrome and how this informs effective behavior management, with practical strategies provided for use in the home and school settings from childhood through transition to adulthood.
OBJECTIVES
1. Participants will understand the basic brain profile in DS, in relation to behavior specifically.
2. Participants will learn behavior principles and strategies that are effective in DS.
3. Participants will understand the concepts of the neuroscience of DS and behavior management in DS in a manner that is flexible and can be applied to a wide variety of situations.
