AKO Autism Expo - Aggression in Autistic Children

    "Aggressive behaviour is a very serious problem for children with #autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Little clinical data exists to show how often aggression is observed in children with ASD, but reports from parents, teachers, and other professionals suggest that aggression is not uncommon. The overall prevalence is high, according to a clinical study published recently by researchers Kanne and Mazurek (2010), which attempted to estimate how often the aggressive behaviour occurs in children and adolescents diagnosed with ASD. Indeed, 68 percent of their sample population (a total of 1,380 children and adolescents with ASD) showed aggression toward a caregiver, and 49 percent showed aggression toward a non-caregiver.

    Don't suffer in silence, Evelyn and Philip will be at the AKO Autism Expo to help give you advice and strategies to keep you and your child safe."

    11th March tickets £10.
