CHALLENGING BEHAVIOURS TOOL KIT
Sometimes the difficulties of autism can lead to behaviours that are quite challenging for us to understand and address. Most individuals with autism will display challenging behaviours of some sort at some point in their lives. Autism Speaks has created this Challenging Behaviours Tool Kit to provide you with strategies and resources to address these behaviours, and to help support you and your loved one with autism during these difficult situations.
The guiding principle used in developing this kit is that each individual with autism and his family should feel safe and supported, and live a healthy life filled with purpose, dignity, choices, and happiness. With this in mind, positive approaches and suggestions are highlighted throughout the kit. The general framework and intervention principles included are relevant at any stage of life, and we have included basic background information, with links to further information and resources on a variety of topics.
