The Challenging Behaviour Foundation wants to see children and adults with severe learning disabilities, who are described as having challenging behaviour, having the same life opportunities as everyone else, including home life, education, employment and leisure.
The Challenging Behaviour Foundation aims to:
- To provide information and support to parents/carers and professionals caring for individuals with severe learning disabilities and challenging behaviour
- To demonstrate how local service provision can be improved, and to actively facilitate such provision on a national basis
- To highlight the needs of those with challenging behaviour and to influence policy and practice on their behalf
- To promote research into challenging behaviour associated with severe learning disabilities and to disseminate the results of such research so that practical benefits are gained
