Challenging behaviour: a guide for family carers on getting the right support for teenagers

This briefing paper provides information for family carers who are supporting a teenager or young adult with severe learning disabilities and behaviour described as challenging, who is approaching transition to adult services. It aims to help carers understand what expect from local services, to help identify what 'good' services look like, to help them ask for the support they and their family need and to help them work in partnership with the professionals.

Communication and challenging behaviour

Using interviews with two parent carers, and with specialist input from Peter McGill (Senior Lecturer in Learning Disability at the University of Kent at Canterbury Tizard Centre), this 40 minute video gives a basic introduction to challenging behaviour associated with severe learning disabilities. The video has been produced for parents and carers of individuals with severe learning disabilities and challenging behaviour, or anyone wanting to understand what it can be like for the families involved.
