For way too long, behavioral regulation needs have only been viewed at the surface level resulting in many children and adults being misunderstood and many underlying needs overlooked. This course will review the issues with the current trends in both behavior assessments as well as the traditional behavior-based supports. As an autistic self-advocate and someone that has been subject to surface behavioral approaches, Chloe will share first-hand accounts about the long-term detrimental impact that these approaches have had on her life. The emerging research that echoes Chloe’s experiences will be shared and will provide further justification for why we need to see past observable behaviors and get better at supporting the underlying causes that often contribute to what it is we see on the outside. The 5 Keys to Behavioral Regulation provides a practical, evidence-based framework for offering strategies that respect and support the underlying regulation needs in children and adults with a variety of learning needs. During this course, many practical strategies will be shared (or demonstrated live!) that will help you implement the following 5 Keys needed for the successful support of behavior regulation:
· Key 1: Building Positive Relationships + Understanding the Whys
· Key 2: Meeting Sensory Needs
· Key 3: Increasing Predictability & Use of Visual Supports
· Key 4: Providing Communication Supports
· Key 5: Interoception, Empowering Self-Regulation & Getting More of the Good Stuff
The practical, evidence-based strategies shared during this course are easy to implement and are applicable in supporting learners of a variety of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses & learning styles.

Handouts for this course:
Christy M. Amazing course! Chloe and Kelly are wonderful presenters and play so well off of each other. I loved every minute of the course and didn’t want it to end. As a school-based OT I support lots of dysregulated students. For years, I’ve been on teams that strongly emphasize a ‘surface behavior’ approach with these students. I knew there was a better way to support their needs, but it was intimidating to contradict the current approach because I wasn’t really sure what to suggest as an alternative. The information presented in this course gave me confidence to return to my job and advocate for a better approach to behavior regulation. I loved the 5 Keys framework and all of the practical strategies presented. If you want to learn how to better support behavior regulation needs, this is the right course for you. I feel so empowered! Thank you, Chloe and Kelly. Blessings.
