Children and adolescents with ASD present with a variety of emotional and behavioral challenges that often need to be addressed during the course of treatment. While Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) may be more traditionally thought of as a treatment for very young and low-functioning children, adopting an ABA framework can be quite beneficial in the development of interventions for problematic behavioral and emotional reactions in school-aged children and adolescents. This framework can be flexibly applied to a host of presenting concerns, including aggression, self-injury, hyperactivity, noncompliance, anxiety, etc. The strategies described can be applied to develop an individualized intervention to promote behavioral and emotional stability across a variety of presenting concerns and stems from the strongest evidence-base.
