The low arousal approach is based on the idea that an individual’s internal physiological state of arousal influences how they deal with sensory input from the environment and how they behave in reaction to that sensory input. The low arousal approach is designed to reduce stressors through the use of techniques which will enable carers to work effectively with children and young people.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To know what we mean by the term ‘arousal’
  2. To understand aggression and crisis management
  3. To know the causes of violence and aggression in persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder
  4. To recognise the negative effects of high arousal and sensory difficulties
  5. To know how to maintain equilibrium
  6. To be aware of low arousal approaches in practice
  7. To recognise the symptoms of physiological arousal
  8. To understand non-verbal behaviours
  9. To develop a crisis plan
  10. To be aware of long-term arousal regulation
