14 Feb The First Step to Tackling Any Problem Behavior
Managing problem behaviors with a child with autism requires a thorough analysis from a professional. Be specific when describing the behaviors, and include details that the professional may not see through their limited time with the child.
Learn from Dr. Mary Barbera as she lists the methods for dealing with problem behaviors in autistic children.
What We Learned from this Video:
- Start off by assessing the child. Don’t just analyze the behavior; assess the child as a whole.
- It is important for a professional to have the full picture of the child’s life, as what they see when they interact may not be an accurate representation of all of the child’s problems, or even their most important ones.
- Be as specific as possible when describing problem behaviors.
