Challenging Behaviour

Children with challenging behaviour are likely to face problems with social communication and interaction At The Loddon School® we aim to help them on their journey by providing them with quality care and a high quality educational provision. Our trained staff and volunteers bring passion and expertise to the lives of 100,000 people living with autism every year.

Children with learning disabilities can often have challenging behaviour. Dealing with your child’s challenging behaviour can be stressful, but you don’t have to tackle it alone. We are here to help you with a shared plan between parents and our team members and aim to provide a caring and effective solution for all.

All children can behave in ways that are difficult to deal with – i.e. having tantrums, being disruptive or even throwing things! Children who have learning disabilities may behave in a challenging way more often, or their behaviour may be more extreme. This is often because they can’t express what they want or feel at the time which is manifested in frustration.

Understanding why your child is behaving like this can help you find a way of dealing with the challenging behaviour.

At The Loddon School® we focus on:

  • Understanding some of the psychological, physical and emotional causes of challenging behaviour
  • Learning ways of helping children and young people to manage their own behaviour

The Loddon School® – A proud history of helping those with Challenging Behaviour.

The Loddon School® was established by Marion Cornick in 1988 as a charitable trust to provide a much needed school in the South of England for children who can no longer live at home because of their exceptional support needs.The Loddon School® is both home and school for 28 children who have the most severe and complex learning difficulties. Many children also have additional problems associated with autism and epilepsy, which often results in challenging behaviour.

The children live at the school 52 weeks a year soThe Loddon School® is a home which provides education, leisure, play, outings and holidays. All children live in small family groups with their own staff who are responsible for their care and support programme and their social development.
