What is Challenging Behaviour?

‘Challenging behaviour’ is how we talk about a range of behaviours which some people with severe learning disabilities may display to get needs met.

Behaviours might be things like:What-is-CB.png

  • Hurting others (e.g. hair pulling, hitting, head-butting)
  • Self-injury (e.g. head banging, eye poking, hand biting)
  • Destructive behaviours (e.g. throwing things, breaking furniture, tearing things up)
  • Eating inedible objects (e.g. cigarette butts, pen lids, bedding)
  • Other behaviours (e.g. spitting, smearing, repetitive rocking stripping off , running away)
