  • Description: It is not always easy to spot behaviour that will challenge us during its early stages. We all engage in behaviour that challenges others at times, it’s part of being human. Many young children naturally have tantrums and some teenagers may demonstrate other behaviours like ignoring their parents. However behaviour can become challenging when it is harmful to the child or other people, it interferes with the child being able to engage in life experiences and when it persists and is severe. It is helpful to remember that all behaviours are a means of communication for your child—they are to trying to tell you something. The challenge for you is to work out what your child is trying to tell you through their actions. What do these actions tell you about their needs and what’s happening for them? With the knowledge from this workshop, you can better work out how to help your child meet their needs, including finding ways to help them use other, more acceptable, ways to communicate.
