Behavioural Interventions and Autism

Behavioural interventions are designed to encourage appropriate behaviour (such as getting dressed or talking to other people) and to discourage inappropriate behaviours (such as self harm or aggression towards others). Therapists, teachers and/or parents break down the desired behaviours into small, achievable tasks which are then taught in a very structured manner.

In practice, behavioural techniques are often used alongside other techniques within many other types of intervention such as many Educational Interventions.
