Autism Speaks Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit » Find Professionals


Are you looking for specific professionals to work with your child? In order to access autism funding for children under six, parents must employ professionals who are on the Registry of Autism Service Providers (RASP). Search the RASP here. For children over 6 (and for all other professionals that may or may not be listed in the RASP), we hope that our Professionals Directory (below) will help you find who you are looking for.

Tip: You will want to use the “Select Category” drop down menu below to narrow down your search, or you can use the Search box.

Please note: If you encounter any listing that is out of date, we would love to know about it. Please contact us.  Also if you know about a professional not yet listed in our database, you can add a listing to our directory here.

Biographical Info

CHALLENGING BEHAVIOURS TOOL KIT
Sometimes the difficulties of autism can lead to behaviours that are quite challenging for us to understand and address. Most individuals with autism will display challenging behaviours of some sort at some point in their lives. Autism Speaks has created this Challenging Behaviours Tool Kit to provide you with strategies and resources to address these behaviours, and to help support you and your loved one with autism during these difficult situations.
The guiding principle used in developing this kit is that each individual with autism and his family should feel safe and supported, and live a healthy life filled with purpose, dignity, choices, and happiness. With this in mind, positive approaches and suggestions are highlighted throughout the kit. The general framework and intervention principles included are relevant at any stage of life, and we have included basic background information, with links to further information and resources on a variety of topics.
