Online Talk and Roleplay: Understanding self-stimulation behaviors and strategies that help

Many children with ASD demonstrate behaviors such as eye cornering, flapping their hands, walking on top toes, lining things up, singing or talking to themselves.

Self-stimulatory behaviors may seem harmless. But for children with autism who lack social and self-regulatory skills, these behaviors can interfere with learning at school or completing daily living activities at home. They can also be disruptive and upsetting to others, causing them to avoid or ostracize the individual in social settings.

In this 2-hour talk, we’ve invited Mr. Toby Mountjoy (Director of Autism Partnership), who will discuss the possible reasons behind these behaviours and what strategies can be helpful to families in dealing with these problems. With didactic presentation, role play and interactive Q&A session in real-time, this talk provides practical knowledges and effective methods that are beneficial for all parents.

    • Innovative vivid element – Role Play will be displayed during the presentation
