Parents’ Workshop – Understanding behaviours in your child that may challenge
July 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Brent Parent Carer Forum invite Parent Carers of children and young people aged up to 25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to this workshop.
As all children grow up there are times when they show difficult or inappropriate behaviour.
Challenging behaviour is a term that is used to describe particularly “difficult” or “problematic” behaviour, which is experienced as challenging by parents and others who care for and support these individuals. Challenging behaviour is more common in individuals with learning (intellectual) disability and autism spectrum conditions than in those without; approximately ten percent of children with learning disability exhibit severely challenging behaviour.
Those with physical, emotional, social and communication difficulties may also show behaviour that is worrying, difficult or challenging. A person’s underlying medical and/or psychiatric condition, age, social experiences, adverse life events and a range of other factors can affect the type of behaviour. Occasionally an underlying cause, for example genetic, may leave the individual prone to challenging behaviours of varying intensity and nature.
Join us for a bite size session to hear some tips and ideas on how to manage and understand Behaviour that may challenge .
