No Fighting, No Biting, No Screaming

How to Make Behaving Positively Possible for People with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Fighting, biting, screaming and other behaviours that challenge the
people dealing with them are often triggered by unsuitable surroundings
or unrealistic demands. In this fresh and effective approach, Bo
Hejlskov Elvén shows how identifying and adapting these problem areas
can dramatically improve behaviour in people with autism and other
developmental disabilities.

This practical book explains how to reassess difficult situations
and offers easy and effective strategies for eliciting positive
responses without resorting to restraint and punishment. Based on the
successful low-arousal approach, it is a proven method of stepping away
from distress and towards calm, improving the quality of life of
everyone involved. Helpful examples covering a wide range of
developmental disabilities from autism to Down's Syndrome
illustrate the positive changes that can be achieved.

This empowering book will be invaluable to anyone attempting to deal
with unproductive behaviour in individuals with developmental
disabilities, whether at home or in a professional environment.

Parents, carers, and professionals working with people with autism and
other developmental disabilities. It will also be of interest to
behavioural psychologists.
