Understanding Behaviour that Challenges
Certificate • Level 2
About the course
On this course you will learn about the following Behaviour that challenges can comprise:
- Aggression: Destructiveness
- Pica: Self-injury or self-harm
- Intrusive repetition
- Being inappropriate
- Running away from or disregarding instructions from adults.
Causes of Behaviour That Challenges - Like most forms of behaviour, behaviour that challenges in children can be very sporadic, sometimes appearing to be out of the blue. Conversely, a child’s attitude can be almost typified by constant disruptiveness and aggression. But it’s not always obvious what is driving the behaviour!
Disabilities - It is fairly common for a child with a learning difficulty to display behaviour that challenges, and this is even more common among children with severe disabilities.
Mental Health Problems and Behaviour That Challenges - Children experiencing mental health problems are more likely to display behaviour that challenges.
Strategies For Dealing With Behaviour That Challenges -It is important to acquire key strategies to help you manage behaviour that challenges.
Model good behaviour- Based on clear and specific communication, set standards for children about the way you expect them to behave.. Recognise and celebrate good behaviour - Telling them “Well done!”, and doing so in front of other children, will demonstrate that positive behaviour is rewarded.
Communicate misbehaviour with parents - Maintaining frequent and open communication with parents is key to addressing behaviour.
