Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit

Sometimes, people with autism display behaviors that are challenging to understand and address.

The Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit will provide you with strategies and resources to address these behaviors and help support you during difficult situations.

The kit is broken into different sections. You may want to read the kit in its entirety or work through a section at a time:

  • Why is autism associated with Challenging Behaviors?
  • Why is it important to do something about Challenging Behaviors?
  • Who can help? 
  • Positive strategies for supporting behavior implementation.
  • Managing a crisis situation.
  • Long-term solutions.
