This online course will enable learners to gain an awareness of the causes of distressed behaviour, along with an understanding of appropriate ways to support a child displaying distressed behaviour. Learners will consider how other characteristics such as mental health, learning disabilities and sensory processing or autism conditions can play a role in distressed behaviour being displayed by a child. Finally, learners will gain an understanding of how current UK legislation underpins approaches to providing support for a child who displays distressed behaviour.

This course is ideal for those who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of distressed behaviour in children. It’s also valuable for anyone who is planning a career that requires an understanding of distressed behaviour and is looking to gain a qualification in this.

Learn how different conditions, such as a learning disability, a mental health condition, sensory issues and autism can impact on behaviour that challenges children and how to support those children who experience these complex behaviours.

This course is ideal for anyone who currently works in, or would like to work in, the education and health and social care sectors.

Free to study.*
