Winter 2012 newsletter edition

The winter 2012 edition of the Challenging Behaviour Foundation newsletter “Challenge” is now available.

It features extracts from the Out of Sight report, which tells the stories of people with severe learning disabilities who have been let down by the system, and our campaign for better support and services.

Dr Nick Gore describes latest research in early intervention, and an exciting project which will work with families of very young children. Chris Harlan-Marks explains how to use person-centred thinking to improve support for people whose behaviour challenges. There is also information about the changes planned for children and young people across education, health and social care.

As always, the edition features family stories. One mother describes how her son has been supported in a mainstream school, and three other families talk about the different ways the CBF has helped them.

The newsletter also provides the latest news from the CBF. SHIEC, one of our demonstration projects, has led to the employment of several people with learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges. The University of Kent has evaluated our Challenging Behaviour Workshops, and concluded that they reduce challenging behaviour and increase positive feelings in family carers and support staff. There are still free workshops available for schools [link] due to funding from the Department for Education.
