Family Plan, Addressing Additional Behavior Management in Autism
Additional behaviors are a hallmark of autism spectrum disorder. Additional behaviors include repetitive and clichéd behaviors, challenges, and limited interests that occur with extreme intensity and impair the child’s adjustment. Such behaviors may be simple (squeaking, insisting, fluttering, limited eating habits, stacking toys, etc.) or complex (interest in certain topics or matters such as numbers, words, cars or vehicles, or other skills that are appropriate for the child’s age. Are not and often seem interesting). Such extra behaviors prevent the child from entering educational and social settings and, as a result, cause significant stress to parents.
The Family-Based Additional Behavior Management Program is designed to introduce additional behaviors, identify causes, and strategies for managing and coping with addictive behaviors. The effectiveness of this program in experimental studies has also been shown (Shiri, Pouretemad, Fathabadi, Narimani, 2019)
