Early Support Information on Behaviour

Written by Early supportDate 16 Mar 2013

This is an Early Support information resource on behaviour and covers why children behave in different ways and gives guidance on how to establish your basic approach to behaviour and what strategies are available for dealing with challenging behaviour.

This publication also discusses the causes of problematic behaviour, if behaviour is linked to certain medical conditions and how to help your child. It breaks guidance down into several areas such as recognising triggers and behavioural charts, including tantrums, hitting, kicking, pinching and biting. Further guidance is available on behaviours surrounding sleeping, eating, smearing, toilet training, looking after yourself and knowing when to seek outside help.
