Behaviour
 
Children with diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder due to various core deficits exhibit variety of challenging behaviours. These behaviours could be due to lack of communication, or pre-occupation with one's own preferences, inability to await, ritualistic behaviours etc. To address those behaviours, behaviour analysts draw up a research based Behaviour Management Plan( BMP),

What is Behaviour Management Plan?


A Behaviour Management plan is a systematic plan to reduce problem behaviours or increase desired behaviours.

Behaviour plans are usually developed by qualified ABA experts including teachers, counsellors, and school psychologists with parental input.

They include:
• statement of the behaviour targeted for change
• A statement of the short and long-term behaviour goal
• An explanation of how the behaviours and progress will be measured
• An explanation of what the plan will include, such as the roles of teachers and instructional assistants
• Details about positive and negative reinforcement that will be used
• An explanation of how the plan will be monitored and evaluated for effectiveness.

ABA therapy can help provide the behaviour management that children with autism need in order to better interact and perform within a given setting. Challenging behaviours includes avoidance, yelling, vocalization, or even physical aggression or self-harm. ABA therapy helps parents to understand these behaviours, the cues that bring them on, and how to change them.

With ABA therapy, a child's behaviour is very closely observed and recorded. This data collection is then used to come up with the best method of treatment. ABA is focused on positive reinforcement. This means that negative behaviours that do not pose a threat to the child are ignored, rather than rewarded with attention, and appropriate behaviours are met with praise or other reinforcement. This helps to teach the child which behaviours are appropriate and which will result in the outcome that he or she is looking for. It can be incredibly effective and can help children learn to communicate properly.
