WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS TRAINING

"Meg's Behavior Problem Solving training was thorough and packed a punch for 2-hours. She provided valuable materials before the course and the actual training was clear and concise. Participants are given the opportunity to practice the strategies during the course so you can feel more confident in using what you learned immediately. Even if you're a new grad or a seasoned veteran, there was something to be learned from this training." - Maria F., OTR/L​

"I cannot recommend Meg's training enough. I current work in behaviour intervention and this training helped to expand my mind and OT toolbox when working with clients and families. The interactivity of the training is beneficial for increased learning and being able to tap into Meg's breadth of knowledge. "Emily S, OT

"Fantastic training. So worthwhile. I am a Behaviour Support Practitioner and while i use a similar style of thinking to come up with hypotheses and interventions, this has provided me with a clear process that the can use myself and with parents to help them understand their children’s behaviour better. There were some great ah-ha moments in this training for me. Thanks Meg!" -  Marcia D. Developmental Educator

"This webinar provides the practitioner with a clear approach in gaining a clearer understanding of learning styles of autistic individual. As a result of the breakdown of learning styles, with a strong focus of a STRENGTHS-BASED approach, Meg helps the practitioner walk away with a framework that can be put into practice immediately. Meg is so positive and approachable when attendees share ideas and ask questions. I would highly recommend this webinar to practitioners, teachers and parents alike! "

"This course provided a new perspective to look at behaviors and helped to expand my neuro-typical way of thinking and helped to inform decisions I would make to provide treatment strategies." -  Sam S OTR/L

Training Agenda

  • Before the training, you'll receive a 40 minute recorded video on autism learning styles. We'll go deep into the latest research. This is the foundation for the training.

  • When we meet on Zoom for the live training, I'll briefly review autism learning styles and the reasons for an autism-specific process to interpret behaviors

  • I'll walk you through the interpreting behaviors process step-by-step using the behavior of a child who throws toys during free time. I'll show you how to use autism learning styles to write hypotheses and generate interventions.

  • The next part is when the learning really happens. Using the behavior of a child who doesn't want to transition between activities, we'll all work through the process together live in the training. You'll be amazed at the hypotheses. and  intervention ideas that you are suddenly able to come up with!

  • You'll receive a worksheet that you can type into or print out and a workbook to make sure you get the most out of the training and can take it into your practice with confidence and skill.

  • In order to receive a certificate of completion, you must complete a quiz demonstrating mastery of the course content and complete an anonymous course satisfaction questionnaire
