A person’s behavior can be defined as challenging if it puts them or those around them (such as their carer) at risk or leads to a poorer quality of life. It can also impact their ability to join in everyday activities. Challenging behavior can include aggression, self-harm, withdrawn behavior or disruptive behaviors. Challenging behavior is a range of behaviors which some people may display. We understand that behavior described as challenging can have a significant impact, not only on the individual themselves, but also on the family and friends caring for that person. Our Support Workers are trained to use Positive Behavior Support approaches to enable clients to communicate their wishes, to explain options and respond consistently.
