Down Syndrome Resource Foundation Behaviour Analyst Sara Peralta will provide an overview on positive behaviour support strategies using a family centered approach. The presentation will cover topics such as what is behaviour, what is positive behaviour support, and how behaviour is also affected by setting events and conditions in an individual’s environment. The presentation is geared towards families of younger children with Down Syndrome who engage in emergent challenging behaviour and who are interested in learning strategies to implement throughout daily routines.
