Finding the Causes of Challenging Behaviour

 ‘Finding the Causes of Challenging Behaviour’ has been updated by the Challenging Behaviour Foundation.

This information sheet looks at the causes of challenging behaviour in someone with a severe learning disability and the different stages of behaviour. It also explains what a “Functional Assessment” is and how it can increase our understanding of challenging behaviour.

Finding the Causes of Challenging Behaviour is the second information sheet in this series. It is recommended that it is read alongside ‘‘Understanding Challenging Behaviour: Part 1’’ and “Positive Behaviour Support Planning: Part 3’’
