Childhood behavior problems are common, but in children with autism they are far more complicated. Behavioral problems in toddlers with autism can include aggression, biting, property destruction, lack of potty training, safety hazards, and more. Eliminating problem behaviors can be difficult, especially if it starts to put the parent or professional in danger. Such severe problem behaviors require a lot of attention, careful assessment, and planning. In this week’s video blog, I’m covering some ways to prevent problem behaviors in children with autism.

Behavior problems in school, at home, on the road or during interaction with others can all be dealt with in similar steps. These strategies to reduce problem behaviors have been tested and proven not only with my own clients but with other parents in my online courses too who have seen significant gains with their children. I know this is a very deep topic area, and I won’t be able to fully go into all the details, but I felt like it’d be a great topic to cover for the last part in our Stuck series for children with autism.

Since 2015, she’s created 3 autism online courses based on applied behavior analysis for professionals and “gung-ho” parents.
