Preparing a child with Autism for school: Importance of Addressing Disruptive Behaviors Early
“The greatest fulfilment I get from working with children with ASD is when a child’s disruptive behaviors are eradicated and I see them a happier child and is more ready to engage with others and learn”. – B.Sc.Edu, Clinical Director, Ms Wong Mai Shan
Importance Of Addressing Disruptive Behaviors Early
Disruptive behaviors ranging from aggression, tantrums, non-compliance to passive behaviors like engaging in self-stimulatory behaviors interferes with the learning process. Proactively addressing disruptive behaviors using strategies that have long-term effects will prepare a child to be more ready to learn in school.
