Behaviour refers to how one conducts themselves. It is their actions, reactions and functioning in response to everyday environments and situations. Challenging behaviour is a term used to describe behaviour that interferes with a child’s daily life. Managing children’s behaviour is essential in maintaining order and structure in the lives of busy families, as well as setting children up for success.
It is important to be aware that behavioural difficulties can often be indicative of difficulties/delays in other areas including: self regulation, sensory processing, receptive and/or expressive language, executive functioning, social skills and planning skills.
