Young children exhibit challenging behaviour for a variety of reasons. They may experience difficulty in their initial transition into an ELCC program, with communication, or with a convergence of delays and environmental factors. As a result of these many contributing factors, young children with challenging behaviour may pose significant disruptions for the entire classroom. These behaviours may compromise the learning and/or safety of other children. (Tuge, Odero, Hogan, & Etz, 2003; Hamre & Pianta, 2001).
