Focusing on the person and their strengths and abilities is a way
adults and children can help a
child with ____________ adjust to
1. special needs
2. behavior problems
Wouldn't it be special needs?

One of the first things to do with a child with special needs is to do an inventory assessment: strengths and weaknesses. Then design a program to focus on the strengths.
Now for behavior problems, focus on the behavior. Reinforce the positive behavior.
Your question is difficult because children with behavior problems are also special needs kids. That said, the focus of the question seems to be on special needs kids with physical or learning problems, rather than behavioral problems.
