Abstract


Background: Issues with actions, interaction with others, and control of emotions encompass an extensive range of problems for kids with intellectual disabilities. Aggression, self-harming behaviours, impulsivity, hyperactivity, impatience, disobedience, difficulties in talking and establishing relationships are a few instances of such issues. These problems can make it difficult for them to go about everyday tasks without support.


Methods: Descriptive research design has been observed as most suitable. Along with that, interpretivism research philosophy and deductive research approach has been selected, the data are non-numeric and collected from secondary sources. Qualitative thematic analysis also has been done.


Result: PBS is a method to help kids having intellectual impairments who exhibit difficult behaviors through using ABA techniques. Both child-centred play therapy and CBT attempt to reduce hyperactivity and discomfort. Children with intellectual impairments benefit from parent training courses as it helps them act better and improves the bond among parent and child.


Conclusion: Individuals with intellectual disabilities may acquire skills on how to handle challenging behaviours with the help of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Improvements in these kids’ interactions with others have been noticed in responses to child-centred play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and parent training courses.
