Repetitive Behaviours in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Corina Vogler, Provisional Psychologist at the Quirky Kid Clinic attended a workshop on Repetitive Behaviours in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at The Melbourne University, Victoria.

This workshop was presented by Professor Margot Prior, University of Melbourne and Ms. Josephine Barbaro, La Trobe University. The workshop explored the nature, type, and triggers of repetitive behaviours common to children with an ASD.  This was followed by a discussion on how these behaviours can be managed, for the better development of the child and to reduce the impact on families.

Corina has since then presented the workshop to the Quirky Kid team as part of our knowledge management and knowledge sharing program.

If you feel that your child may be displaying repetitive behaviours or if you would like any further information about Autism Spectrum Disorder, please contact us, or visit our resources pages.
