Most students display aggressive behaviour at various stages of development. A student may snatch a toy from a peer, push a peer who is too close, kick a peer who is making fun of them, call a peer names, or scream if something is taken away. While most students outgrow this kind of behaviour as they mature emotionally and develop more sophisticated language social and problem solving skills, some students do not. Some students consistently exhibit aggressive behaviours.
Based on the evidence based Positive Behaviour Support approach this user-friendly resource will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage challenging behaviours at all levels of severity.

Use the comprehensive checklists and tools provided to develop PBS plans that can be used to support the student consistently in all settings.
