He is a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and holds a Masters in Curriculum, Instruction & Applied Behavioural Analysis from Arizona State University.

He deeply believes that a well-designed sensory environment creates infinite learning opportunities for all.

Below are the details of his September workshop series.

Thursday, 19 September 2019 – for Parents & Therapists

These workshops are designed to foster an understanding of challenging behaviours we may see at home or in treatment settings. Participants will be encouraged to see behaviour as a form of communication and understand the underlying need the behaviour may serve. The workshops will provide caregivers with practical tools for responding to challenging behaviour with compassion, while teaching better forms of communication. Participants will also gain understanding into the attention, emotional regulation, and planning challenges caused by executive functioning and sensory differences. Strategies will be shared on creating a sensory friendly space and helping individuals self-regulate habits such as screen time.

Friday 20 September 2019 – for Teachers, TAs & Therapists

These workshops are designed to introduce professionals to the the idea of seeing behaviour as a language that can reveal the true needs of a learner. Steven will share a system for understanding the reason a behaviour may occur and how to create goals that directly address the core issue. He will also explore the concept of sensory-based executive functioning differences. The solutions explored will apply to individuals with attention and behavioural difficulties, but are best practice for any educational environment. These workshops will also inspire attendees to create an engaging learning environment that harnesses the learner’s creativity and internal motivation.
