Behavior Disorders

Any of various forms of behavior that are considered inappropriate by members of the social group to which an individual belongs.

A functional disorder or abnormality.

Aggression is a common occurrence in households of children with disabilities. This can be overwhelming for most parents. The purpose of this post is to identify variables that affect aggression, along with basic preventative and response strategies.

After identifying the function, the BCBA can then assist in identifying individualized antecedent and response strategies, accompanied with functional replacement behaviors to decrease aggression and improve functional skills.
