Disability and Youth Services
When a person’s behaviour seems unpredictable or is perceived to ‘come out of nowhere’, it’s important to recognise that all behaviours have a function or serve a need.
People with a disability sometimes rely on behaviours of concern to meet a need when they have skill deficits (e.g. communication, cognitive, social) or setting/events/environmental factors. These behaviours of concern can inadvertently be reinforced when the desired response is achieved.
Any behaviours that impact a person’s quality of life (e.g. causing distress to themselves or others, damaging relationships with others, limiting opportunities to engage in activities that give purpose etc.) are considered behaviours of concern. Examples of behaviours of concern include self-harm, physical harm to others, and property damage.
