For children on the autism spectrum, who are absolute thinkers, the world with its ever-changing meanings is very confusing and threatening. This is especially the case if autism goes together with low cognitive abilities or a young developmental age. For autistic children, the world can be so threatening, that the only way to communicate stress and anxiety is through behaviors, such as a meltdown, a shutdown, or even self-injurious behaviors or aggression. In this webinar, we will explore the underlying causes of these stress-related behaviors as they relate to absolute thinking in a relative world and practical strategies to cope with these behaviors. In the second half of the webinar, we will focus on prevention: a focus on well-being strategies for autistic children can help to prevent stress in the first place. This webinar will change some of the currently used strategies in autism and offer new, dynamic strategies and solutions.
