CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS – 5 QUICK TIPS

How to be a detective when problem solving behavioral issues?

  1. Recognize behaviors that are learned and reinforced over a lifetime of experience, no matter how young a child.
  2. Always see the participant and not the behavior problem.
  3. Research the participant’s day – where they go and what they experience – in order to understand what situations create responses that are hard to control.
  4. Speak to those who know and work with the participant – find out what they know as part of understanding the triggers and his/her daily experiences.
  5. Develop and practice consistency and stability – emotional and physical – so that you can absorb the energy of someone’s challenging behavior and let it out safely.
