An Early Childcare Provider’s Guide to Managing Challenging Behaviors

May 3, 2017

This Your Dollars @ Work post was written by Stephanie Weber, Psy.D., Training Director of the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) Program in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, an Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network (ATN) site…

In our community, very few childcare centers are structured to assure essential supports are available for children with autism. Every day, a child with developmental concerns is dismissed from daycare for disruptive behaviors. Every day, a parent must quit his or her job to stay home and care for the child who is “kicked out.” The growing number of children with autism who are excluded from these environments makes it extremely important to train daycare providers on autism and associated behaviors so these children can be kept safe and their parents can continue to work. Our project, Building Community Capacity in Daycare Settings for Young Children with Autism, was developed to help do that.

Through the incredibly helpful support from an Autism Speaks grant, we were able to train over 40 childcare providers and center directors and develop a curriculum to train them in understanding the unique differences of children with autism and using evidence-based strategies with children, especially those with autism. The training team included trainees in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and 9 LEND trainees learned the material and put their leadership skills into practice by facilitating the community trainings.
