Autism Speaks Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit. Sometimes the difficulties of autism can lead to behaviors that are quite challenging to understand and address. The guiding principle used in developing this kit is that each individual with autism and their family should feel safe and supported, and live a healthy life filled with purpose, dignity, choices and happiness.
Nicole Weidenbaum, M.S.Ed., SAS, Executive Director, Nassau Suffolk Services for Autism answers questions about addressing challenging behaviors.
Questions addressed include: 1) Why is it important to address challenging behaviors? 2) What should I know before addressing challenging behaviors? 3) How important is consistency in addressing challenging behaviors? 4) What if I'm having trouble carrying out a behavior plan?
