Looking after a young child is hard enough, but when that child has learning difficulties and displays challenging behaviour - the burden on parents can be extreme. That behaviour may prompt a visit to the doctor, and in this podcast we’re talking about how parents can be supported in that - what services are available. We’ll also be discussing what is normal behaviour, and what might prompt a referral to a specialist team for further assessment. In this podcast we're joined by 2 of the authors of a recent practice pointer - Managing challenging behaviour in children with possible learning disability. Angela Hassiotis - professor of psychiatry of intellectual disability at University College London and Michael Absoud - consultant in paediatric neurodisability at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital. We also have Rebecca - mother of a child who displayed some of these behaviours, and is actually a parent/carer case worker supporting families of children with disabilities.
