All behaviour is a communication and happens for a reason, when we think of challenging behaviour this is the same. Although it is sometimes hard to understand why a child behaves in a particular way their behaviour will always have a purpose or function for the behaviour. Identifying the underlying function of a behaviour can be helpful when developing our approach to dealing with behaviours of concern. Once we understand more about the purpose or function of a behaviour, we can think of effective ways to decrease the frequency and severity of these behaviours and to increase a child’s more appropriate behaviours.
