How to Help and Support Children with Violent Challenging Behaviour
Sat 1 April 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
For Families of hard-to-manage children with Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities or Emotional Issues Professionals Welcome too
Organised and Hosted by Yvonne Newbold in Partnership with The Patient Network Experience
Does your child ever hurt you?
Do you feel unable to cope with your child’s behaviours?
Do you feel alone and unsupported, with nowhere to turn for help?
Are you frightened about their future?
Are you reluctant to talk about it in case other people blame you?
Please join us to share our experiences together, to meet others going through the same difficulties, and to learn from experts in this field about why our children behave as they do and what we can do to help our families
