Challenging Behaviors: What to Expect

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can exhibit a range of challenging behaviors in early childhood, with temper tantrums being one of the highest occurring problems and aggressive behaviors more common among those children with minimal language abilities. This week’s FREE tool is a figure illustrating the various challenging behaviors that young children with ASD might exhibit. Print it off and pin it to your bulletin board as a reminder to help you understand your students and the underlying causes for the behaviors they may exhibit. The figure comes from “Addressing Challenging Behaviors and Mental Health Issue in Early Childhood,” an important book written to help teachers positively address behavior in the classroom, promote mental health and resilience in children, and engage families in the process.
