Encouraging Positive Behaviour in Young Children


Disabled children may present as having challenging behaviour for a variety of reasons.

In early years settings, it is very important to understand the difference between challenging behaviour caused by a disability and behaviour that is consistent with a child starting to understand the world around them. Equally important is learning how to manage this behaviour effectively and understanding what support is available as that child enters the education system.

Mastering these skills can be vital for both parents themselves and for professionals. OFSTED and CQC guidance advises professionals and carers to work in a person-centred way and to be creative in order to minimise behaviour that presents as challenging.

Who is the course for?

This course is designed to support the parents of young children who have difficulty with challenging behaviour. It is based on the most recent good practice guidance and parent carers themselves as experts in their own experience.

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • Have explored why a child may behave the way they do.
  • Understand ways in which they can promote positive behaviour.
  • Understand how to encourage positive behaviour by using different techniques.
  • Be able to work with others to encourage positive behaviour.
  • Understand their rights to seek support for their child's behaviour when they enter the education system.

We also have information on our website on behaviour that challenges.
