What are Self Injurious Behaviors?

Some children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may engage in self-injurious behavior (SIB).

SIB can be overwhelming for parents/caregivers and alarming to strangers who may not understand what's going on. In the next section, we will discuss what SIB is, what triggers it and interventions.
