How is headbanging treated?

In most cases of headbanging behavior in toddlers, no treatment and only management and monitoring are required. This is because most children will grow out of the behavior. If your child has headbanging behavior that causes them to injure themselves or puts them at risk of injuring themselves, protective headwear may be worn. If possible, it can help to identify and limit the cues or circumstances that cause headbanging.
