Behaviour is often used an an alternative means of communication such as an outburst of tears when a child does not get his / her way. Sometimes it may arise as a direct result of the frustration, anxiety and confusion they feel at not being able to communicate. It may also be because they are particularly sensitive to the environment and sensory stimuli around them.

When a person with an ASD feels stressed, they may have previously learned to behave in a particular way that will ease the stressful situation. There are a number of different reasons why a person with an ASD may display what we regard as “difficult” or challenging behaviour:

  • Goal – the achievement of the child
