Event description

Description

If you care for a child or young person with autism and severe learning difficulties, you are eligible for a comprehensive range of support from Seashell Trust.

This is the fifth of several sessions aimed at helping families deal with everyday issues like mealtimes, communication, behaviour and looking for ways to help your child become more independent.

In this session, Seashell Trust's Behaviour Management Coordinator Lynne Thompson will answer all your questions about behaviour. As so many families know, behaviours of concern (which might cover a wide range of things like biting, hitting, breaking objects, self-injury, screaming, removing clothing and more) can be upsetting and frustrating for everyone involved - but all behaviour has a function.

Lynne will use this workshop to discuss some of the reasons why concerning behaviours arise and the different ways in which they might manifest in different children and young people. She will also talk about positive behaviour support and some of the ways young people can be supported to address behaviours of concern, enhancing both their quality of life and that of their families and carers.

The speaker may be recorded to share with families who are unable to attend. If you do not wish to be filmed, please sit behind the camera.

If you have any questions, please contact our Outreach team at 0161 610 0741 or email admissions@seashelltrust.org.uk
