Language delayed children may have learned to express their dissatisfaction by whining or throwing temper tantrums. Sometimes they engage in negative behavior or “misbehave” because they do not have the communication skills necessary to make their needs known. Most children, and certainly children with communication disorders, have trouble expressing their anxieties and fears. They may crumble under the demands being placed on them at school, home and in therapy. They may use acting out/defiant behaviors as a way to express their feelings.
Behavior triggers and strategies discussed in this course enable clinicians to effectively manage caseloads, while being a support source for clients’ professionals, teachers, educators, and parents/caregivers. Opportunities abound for clinicians to help teachers, parents and caregivers address challenging behavior because of the link between language disorders and “misbehavior” in young clients.
