J enjoys playing with Lego, completing puzzles, art & crafts activities, and engaging in pretend play with sibling. J began ABA treatment Spring of 2018 after his fourth birthday.

At the start of treatment J engaged in the following maladaptive behaviors: noncompliance, verbal aggression, property destruction, elopement, and physical aggression in the forms of biting, hitting, kicking, and spitting. On the first day of treatment, J engaged in aggressive noncompliant behavior and physical aggression in the form of biting.
