Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can exhibit behavioral challenges such as tantrums, aggression, and difficulties following parent requests, which impact engagement in daily living skills. The recognized struggles parents face in raising a child with ASD have sparked increased interest in evidence-based parent training (PT) programs, as they empower parents to be the agent of change for their child. This presentation will describe of the impact of challenging behaviors on families and review evidence-based approaches targeting the treatment of challenging behaviors in ASD.
