What’s it all about?

Many children tend to display aspects of behaviour that challenges at some point in their lives, but most eventually develop the necessary skills to grow out of this.

However, some children (especially those with a learning disability, sensory issues or a mental health condition) may not develop these skills without the appropriate help and support, and therefore may continue to display behaviour that challenges.

This course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of behaviour that challenges in children, including how such behaviour can be assessed and the avoidance techniques that can help minimise the effects of behaviour that challenges.
Learners will look at how different coexisting conditions, such as a learning disability, a mental health condition, sensory issues and autism can impact on behaviour that challenges and how to support those children who experience these complex behaviours.

This course is ideal for learners who wish to develop an in-depth knowledge of behaviour that challenges in order to progress into related employment in health and social care. Anyone who currently works in education or health and social care settings would also benefit from the course.

Students wishing to undertake the certificate should be aged 18 or over. You will need to have at least a Level 1 qualification in literacy as you will be expected to write answers for assessment purposes.
