Best Practices in Reducing Self-Injurious Behaviours in Children with Autism: A Proposal
MetadataShow full item record
Self-injurious behaviours can be harmful and dangerous to a child’s physical and mental well-being. There are many various types of interventions in use by clinicians which can vary in effectiveness and efficiency. Identifying those interventions that clinicians have found to be most effective will provide clinicians, professionals and parents methods to assist in reducing self-injurious behaviours in children with autistic disorder. The results from this proposed study will be based on clinicians‟ reports of interventions they have found or believed to be most effective in treating self-injurious behaviours. The purpose of this paper is to propose a study to examine the effectiveness of current treatment interventions used by clinicians to reduce these behaviours.
