About this Session:

Join us for a session on the use of protective equipment and medication for safety in children displaying self-injurious behaviour (SIB). We will briefly discuss the general approach to assessing and managing SIB, at what point parents might consider using protective equipment and medications, and best practices when using these safety tools.

What is Self-Injurious Behaviour (SIB)?

Self-Injurious behaviour can be defined as: self-directed injury that is non-suicidal in nature and causes physical trauma. These isolating behaviours may affect children with intellectual impairment, autism or other forms of neurodiversity. SIB is a multifaceted behaviour that is difficult to understand and treat as the diagnosis varies across individuals. Currently, proper evidence-based care does not exist, so it can be extremely challenging to care for children with severe SIB.

Are you a parent/primary caregiver of a person with Self Injurious Behaviours? Are you passionate about taking your learning to the next level? As a parent/primary caregiver do you want to learn more on how to support yourself and your child? We are bringing to you a unique 6-part series to learn and explore ways to support families and their children. These six sessions are meant to promote education around severe SIB, to create a supportive SIB community, as well as to advocate for better health outcomes.

You Can Participate in Any of These Ways:

  1. Pre-watch any of the 6 series pre-recorded workshops
  2. Pre-watch any of the 6 series pre-recorded workshops then join on event night and participate in our live and interactive Q & A
