Children with challenging behaviors, including those with global developmental delays such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD); present a unique set of issues for health care providers. Behaviors such as grabbing, biting, scratching, kicking and slapping, along with self-injury, can present a significant safety risk to staff and the patient, as well as causing distress to other patients, family members and visitors. Challenging behavior that is ineffectively addressed can lead to poor delivery of health care, over-reliance on medications and restraints, and increased stress and burn-out in health care providers. This course will discuss some common causes of challenging behaviors and modifications to the plan of care that can reduce incidents of aggression. The course will also review de-escalation strategies that can be used to resolve behavioral challenges. Review details within the body of this course to validate availability of CE credits.
