Programme Description

(Learn this 5-step thinking process designed help provide a systemic process of problem-solving behavioural challenges in Autistic Students in Special School)

Every encounter with challenging behavior is a distressing one, especially for the individual faced with the behavior(s).  

While professionals are often left feeling frustrated and ill-equipped, many such behaviors are often an expression of unmet needs for the autistic students.

Every encounter can be used as an opportunity for us to learn more about the autistic student(s) and help professionals improve their skills to provide better support.

The “Ice-Berg Thinking Steps” is a 5-step thinking process, designed to empower you with a systematic process of problem solving these behavioral challenges.

With 3 sessions conducted 2 weeks apart, this allows participants to implement the strategies discussed, ascertain its effectiveness and review in subsequent sessions for further improvement.

Session 1 – Presentation of the Iceberg Thinking Steps process through an interactive lecture (using a case study).

  • Understand the Iceberg Thinking Steps
  • Apply the Iceberg Thinking Steps to gain insight into behaviour that challenges

Session 2 – Sharing of your own case study, applying the Iceberg thinking steps to generate strategies.

  • Apply the Iceberg Thinking Steps to craft an action plan to support behaviour that challenges
  • Enhance the application of Structured Teaching principles to support behaviour that challenges

Session 3 – Sharing application of strategies, reviewing progress, problem solving and discussions on next steps.

  • To extend learning from session 2
  • To review the action plan
