Behavioural Challenges Observation Checklist

6-15 years

About the Checklist:

Brief-write up

Most children tend to be naughty, disobedient, and impulsive, however, at times the challenging behaviours can be quite strange, intense, inappropriate in a social setting, and be harmful to themselves and/or others.

Behavioural Challenges in children can be due to a variety of factors, it could simply be a stress reaction of the child, i.e., the inability of the child to cope with a stressful situation/demands leading to the manifestation of behavioural challenges or it could be caused by an underlying disorder like Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Conduct Disorder, Learning Disabilities (LD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), etc. Identifying the signs of challenging behaviours, their underlying factors are crucial for the educators and caregivers to plan and support their child/children with early intervention.

Why use this checklist?

Eblity’s Behavioural Challenges Checklist is designed by referring to the DSM Criteria and adapted from the Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL). By using this checklist you will be able to identify the signs of challenging behaviours in your child that are either harmful or inappropriate in a given social situation. This will help you in initiating and seeking early intervention to promote your child’s holistic development.

Who can use this checklist?

Children at times tend to be disobedient and engage in tantrum behaviours, however, some challenging behaviours can be distressing and devastating. It is important to identify and address these challenging behaviours at an early age.
Parents, Caregivers Professionals, and Educators who are wanting to determine if their child/children between the age of 6-15 years are exhibiting and engaging in challenging behaviours.

Point to Note/Disclaimer
