Special Needs and Behavior: When the Consequences Aren't Working


It's natural for kids to test limits; they all do it. As a parent, therapist, teacher, or loved one, we know we have to set firm boundaries with kids. But what do you do when the boundaries and consequences aren't working?

In a recent blog post, Jessie Nelson Willis shared her thoughts and tips, based on her own experiences, for how to manage a child's behavior when the typical approaches don't seem to be working.
