Sometimes we think challenging behavior just happens, but the truth is there is always a reason or a function for a behavior.  Knowing what the function of a behavior is helps us to know how to effectively intervene/react. Autism mom Shannon Penrod talks about the “Four Usual Suspects” which are the four main reasons why children engage in challenging behavior! Knowledge is Power!!


Autism Live is a production of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), headquartered in Tarzana, California, and with offices throughout, the United States and around the globe. For more information on therapy for autism and other related disorders, visit the CARD website at
