About the course
Distance learning courses enable you to boost your career with a nationally recognised qualification even if you don’t have the time to attend training sessions. You will work your way through the qualification submitting work every 2 weeks, achieving within approximately three months.
This qualification will provide you with a detailed understanding of behaviour that challenges in children, including how such behaviour can be assessed and the avoidance techniques that can help minimise the effects of behaviour that challenges. You will look at how different coexisting conditions, such as a learning disability, a mental health condition, sensory issues and autism can impact on behaviour that challenges 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.
The course is split into six manageable units:
- Awareness of behaviour that challenges in children
- Principles of intervention when working with behaviour that challenges in children and young people
- Behaviour that challenges and mental health in children
- Behaviour that challenges and learning disabilities
- Behaviour that challenges, sensory issues and autism
- Legislation supporting behaviour that challenges in children
This course can be studied purely online and is ideal for those who are happy to work independently using our fully supported online learning platform.
