‘Challenging behaviour’ is how we talk about a range of behaviours which some people with severe learning disabilities may display when their needs aren't being met. Find out more about why people display challenging behaviour and how the CBF can help.
Behaviour that challenges can be very distressing for a child or adult with learning disabilities and their family and carers. It is important to understand the reasons behind challenging behaviour and see it as a form of communication to know how to respond. It shows that something is not right for the child or adult and they need some help and support.
