SEND and Challenging Behaviour

Positive Approaches to Supporting Challenging Behaviour

Here are some of the Resources I use with staff who are supporting SEND students with challenging behaviour.

I believe that behaviour is a function of environment. So we should manage behaviours, that we find a problem, in a positive way that has positive regard for the individual.  My materials reflect this philosophy.
