Teaching autistic students who demonstrate ‘challenging behaviours’ at school or pre-school – Altogether Autism

 January 2018 – Emma Goodall is autistic, an educator and an autism adviser. She writes about how that means she questions everything.

I HAVE demonstrated my fair share of ‘challenging behaviours’ over the years.

Being who I am has led me to question everything, not the least of which is what we mean by challenging behaviour.

As a result, I initially came to the following definition:

“Challenging behaviours are those that hurt or damage self, others or things/the environment around.”

However, after being involved in two years of highly successful trials in schools and pre-schools in South Australia to reduce ‘challenging behaviour’, I have come to a different conclusion.
