Hi Everyone!

I’m writing this from warm sunny New York City where I’m doing a series of seminars this week for professionals. I wasn’t anticipating being able to enjoy weather this nice while I’m here, but it’s a great break from cool rainy Michigan! I’m looking forward to spending a few days with professionals who are passionate about serving children and adults with autism and neurodevelopmental disorders.

April is Autism Awareness Month, and I’m excited to share a great opportunity for parents (and professionals) to learn strategies for supporting children with autism. The "Autism Empowerment Telesummit-2013" is a FREE series of calls and resources featuring well-known experts on various topics pertaining to autism and related disorders. I am honored to be a panel participant this year. You can get more details below, but if you know you want to sign up for the series you can click here now to register.

Enjoy your week!

Perspectives on Behavior

By Nicole Beurkens, PhD

All children exhibit less-than-desirable behaviors at one time or another. Sometimes children exhibit many of these behaviors throughout the day, especially in the case of children with neurodevelopmental disorders. The behaviors can take over everyone’s lives and become the focus of our interactions with these children. Too often we blame the child, when what we need to do is analyze what the child’s behavior is telling us and how we can best support his or her functioning. This involves looking beyond what is on the surface to see what physical and emotional needs lie beneath.
