Show Notes

Welcome to another episode of Don't IEP Alone podcast! This episode is the Part 2 of "Let's Talk About Behavior". 

Children with autism and other learning disabilities often struggle with negative behaviors. These behaviors are often a result of the child's lack of skills or sensory experiences. Behavior plans are often used to address these behaviors. However, behavior plans should not be used to punish or reward a child for a skill set or a sensory experience. Instead, behavior plans should be focused on addressing the underlying cause of the behavior.

Parents should learn their rights in the process and use them to help their children. It is also important to engage the child to the maximum extent possible so that they can understand why they are doing the behavior.
