Adaptive behavior is a type of behavior that is used to adapt to another type of behavior or situation. This is often characterised by a kind of behavior that allows an individual to substitute an unconstructive or disruptive behavior to something more constructive. These behaviors are most often social or personal behaviors. For example a constant repetitive action could be re-focused on something that creates of builds something. In other words the behavior can be adapted to something else.
