ASD & De-Escalation Strategies

A practical guide to positive behavioural interventions for children and young people by Steve Brown.

With clear advice and strategies that can be easily implemented in practice, Steve Brown explains how non-physical and physical interventions can be used to keep children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or emotional behavioural difficulties safe when their behaviour becomes challenging. He includes a range of de-escalation and behaviour focused strategies, information on risk assessments and legalities and an honest and open discussion about the important role of physical interventions and positive handling techniques.

Providing clarity and insight into this complex subject, this book will allow professionals working with children and young people with ASD or ESBD to use non-physical interventions with confidence and understand the role of physical interventions as a last resort, within a legal framework.
