Information and guidance

Do you need information about challenging behaviour and connected issues? We have a broad range of information sheets, webpages, packs, templates and videos, grouped into different sections.

Challenging behaviour is often perceived as a ‘problem’ to be ‘treated’. The problem is seen as being part of the child or adult rather than focussing on what needs to change around the individual, such as their environment or how people support them.

We offer a range of resources offering support and information about challenging behaviour and connected issues.

Below are nine links which take you to different sections of our site, offering information and guidance on everything from COVID-19 to rights and the law.
