Autism in the Classroom- Why Behaviors Happen

In this Ability Life Solutions Video Favorite, Shannon Penrod, autism mom and former teacher, delves into the function of behavior, including the four usual suspects, attention-seeking, escaping or elopement – trying to avoid, access to someone or something, and the toughest to solve, are sensory challenges. Possible sensory dysfunction can be difficult to understand as parents continue to explore, un-cover, and reveal to find the purpose of a child’s behavior, so often calling for your school to provide a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) might be warranted as you continue to attempt to figure out what your child is saying through behavior.

Ability Life Solutions especially recommends not just this video, but all of Shnnon’s work via her Autism Live videos. She is relatable, and always chalk-full of great insights and information
