Understanding behaviour

People with autism may have behaviours which appear unusual to some. There is nearly always a reason behind these behaviours – it could be that the individual is using it as a coping strategy or it may be their way of trying to communicate.

At BeyondAutism we are experts in Applied Behaviour Analysis where we use evidence-based procedures to discover why certain behaviours happen and where appropriate, provide people with an alternative communication method to share their feelings.

In this section you will find further detail on behaviours that challenge, including why they occur and steps you can take to reduce them, self-stimulatory behaviour and routine and planning for change.

If you’re in a hurry, take a look at our 5 top tips for behaviour!
