The term "challenging behaviour" has been used to refer to the "difficult" or "problem" behaviours which may be shown by individuals. Such behaviours include aggression (e.g., hitting, kicking, biting), destruction (e.g., ripping clothes, breaking windows, throwing objects), self-injury (e.g., head banging, self-biting, skin picking), tantrums and many other challenging behaviours (e.g. running away, eating inedible objects, rocking or other stereotyped movements).

You can ask some key questions to ascertain the cause of the challenging behaviour.

Suggested questions you could ask as the detective are.
