Supporting someone with learning disabilities and or behaviour that challenges can be very stressful and isolating. Having someone who is able to offer advice and support can make a huge difference.
The term “Challenging Behaviour” has been used to refer to “difficult” or “problem” behaviours which may be shown by children or adults with a learning disability.
Challenging Behaviour can put the safety of the person or others at risk or have a significant effect on the person’s everyday life.
By working together and improving a person’s quality of life, challenging behaviour reduces as a side effect.
