Do you have any advice for behaviour management for children with SEN?


Always ensure that you understand the underlying reason for the child’s behaviour. For example are they seeking some sensory input? Are they unable to communicate a need or want and are therefore frustrated? Are they looking for adult attention? etc. Once the reason is understood, try to meet the need (for example a means of communicating something, an outlet for their sensory need) then see if the behaviour decreases. Always ensure that you refer on to the appropriate professionals to support the child around behaviour management, for example SLT, OT, Clinical Psychologist, etc.
