Behavioral Support Program
Behavior problems are among the most common causes of difficulties for people with developmental disabilities. Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), for example, exhibit disruptive behaviors such as tantrums, aggression, self-injury, and property destruction. These behaviors can interfere with social interactions, learning, and daily functioning. Fortunately, there are a variety of behavioral interventions that can help people with ASD and other developmental disabilities to achieve greater success in their lives.
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is one of the most well-established and widely used behavioral therapies. ABA focuses on teaching desired behaviors and reducing disruptive ones. It is effective in treating a variety of behavior problems in people with ASD and other developmental disabilities. Other helpful behavioral interventions include positive behavior support (PBS) and functional communication training (FCT).
By working with a qualified behavioral support specialist, many people with developmental disabilities can learn the skills they need to lead more successful lives.
