Abstract

Challenging behaviour is commonly defined as behaviour that is of an intensity, frequency, or duration that threatens the physical safety of the person or others or restricts access to community facilities.12 Challenging behaviour can first occur in childhood and can be difficult for parents, carers, and family members to understand and manage. Parents and carers may present to healthcare services, including their GP, with concerns about their children’s behaviour. In some cases, challenging behaviour may be a sign of a known or an undiagnosed learning disability. This article gives particular advice about how to identify and manage children where a learning disability might be a contributing factor.
