Paving the Way

Early intervention for children with learning disabilities whose behaviours challenge

What is the aim of the project?

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF) and the Council for Disabled Children (CDC) want to see better outcomes and a better quality of life for children with learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges.

To help achieve this we:

All children want to be able to do things they are interested in, to go to school, and take part in things they enjoy like sports and activities. But, children with learning disabilities are often not given the help they need to do these things.

Sometimes this is because their behaviour is challenging to the people around them, and people don’t really know how to respond to it. Children with learning disabilities are more likely to show challenging behaviour than children without learning disabilities, because they find it harder to communicate their needs.

The ‘well-trodden path’  is a path children end up on all too often.
