Writing a Behaviour Support Plan (BSP) for a Pupil with Autism


Mon, 23 Mar 2020 13:30 - 15:30


Whitefield Research and Development Centre (MAIN / Main room), Macdonald Road, Walthamstow, London, E17 4AZ



Course Code:



During this workshop each participant will write a bespoke BSP for a pupil they support who has known behavioural difficulties.
Participants will be led through a step-by-step approach to create a BSP which can be implemented straight away back at school.
Consideration will be given to the cause of each behaviour in order to find suitable strategies to try to prevent the behaviour from happening, whilst at the same time making a clear plan which can be followed when difficulties do arise.


Many people with autism have difficulties understanding the world around them, leaving them feeling highly anxious as they are unsure how to behave and what to do. This course will try to develop empathy and understanding for pupils on the autism spectrum in order to help those supporting them develop a clearer idea of the kind of measures they can help put in place to make it less likely for those difficult behaviours to occur. Participants will also consider ways they can intervene when a pupil begins to show signs that something is wrong, as well as developing a clear plan of action for worst case scenarios.


Participants will develop an understanding of why pupils with autism may have unusual and at times challenging behaviours and learn practical strategies for preventing and managing unwanted behaviour.
