Abstract

This chapter presents the issue of challenging behaviors co-occurring within individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Because ASD is highly associated with challenging behaviors, it is important that practitioners consider the presence of multiple comorbid challenging behaviors. This chapter describes the characteristics, prevalence, and impact of challenging behaviors followed by strategies of assessment and empirically-supported treatments.
