All children misbehave at times. Some go through periods of time when life changes may cause some behavioral acting out—divorce, the birth of a sibling, a change in schools or a death in the family. However, if the behavioral disruption continues or is severe, help may be needed.

Behavior disorders are a group of behaviors that include:

Physical aggression
Damaging or destroying property
Lying or stealing
Running away or elopement
Hostility/defiance toward parents and/or other authority figures
Children with intellectual or developmental delays are more likely to exhibit behavior disorders. At BSI, our first step is to conduct a functional behavior analysis to determine what purpose the behavior is serving for the child, specifically this looks at what the child is gaining from the behavior. Once we understand what is reinforcing the behavior, we can determine appropriate interventions. Behavioral outbursts are reinforced and maintained by one or more of the following: attention, escape or avoidance of a situation or task, an attempt to obtain a tangible item or by the physical sensation that results from the behavior.

Our behavior intervention plans focus on positive behavior supports that include strategies to reduce the likelihood that the problem behavior will occur. We develop plans to help the child get what they want by teaching positive replacement behaviors, and we give parents the tools and support they need to implement the plan at home. The Behavior technician and the Behavior Analysts work together to improve behaviors.
