Positive Behaviour Support Strategies for Students with Aggressive Behaviour
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
