Challenging Behaviors We Address
Children with autism may often exhibit challenging behaviors at some point in their lives. As a result, many children and their families are not able to fully participate in their schools and communities, and their quality of lives can be significantly impaired. Children with autism tend to engage in challenging behaviors due to their lack of skills to appropriately handle the daily challenges they encounter. There can be many reasons for why these behaviors occur, and an ABA approach is the most effective approach to understand how these behaviors were learned, what skills need to be taught for children to successfully overcome their daily challenges and to develop an Individualized Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP).
