Challenging behaviour is when a person with learning disabilities exhibits behaviours that can place their safety – or that of others – in serious jeopardy. People who display challenging behaviour can enjoy a normal life when their condition is properly understood and they receive appropriate support.

Exclusive extract: The Anger Box - Phoebe Caldwell
Phoebe Caldwell offers a fresh insight into autism spectrum disorders in The Anger Box.
To read an exclusive excerpt of Chapter 1 of The Anger Box sign up below.
This book will be of interest to professionals, as well as appealing to parents with autistic children, those with a general interest in the subject and many individuals on the autism spectrum themselves.
Shifting attention away from presentation and symptoms alone, Phoebe explores and attempts to understand the sensory issues experienced by those on the spectrum and their neurobiological roots in an effort to find new ways of alleviating the distress that can characterise this condition.
