Understanding Behaviours and Fragile X |Saturday 29 October 2022 AND Saturday 12 November
Fragile X syndrome presents with unique neurobiological underpinnings that affect behaviour.
In the first session Dr Braden examines behavioural responses resulting from neurobiology which can often manifest in observable physical aspects such as facial redness, increased movement, and cluttered speech. Understanding the specific areas in the brain affected by Fragile X syndrome allows for affective programming and strategies for daily living.

Being aware of the neurobiological underpinnings of Fragile X syndrome prompts affective programming and sound behavioural strategies.
In the second session Dr Braden explains why traditional behaviour intervention does not often bring success in reducing difficult behaviours. She will carefully construct a number of strategies using videos to showcase successful intervention. The ABC’s of behavioural observations will be presented and discussed. An understanding of how antecedents as well as consequences may, in fact, contribute to the behaviour rather than help reduce it is essential to good programming.
