Story

We are a small voluntary organisation supporting families and carers of children and young people with additional support needs and disabilities who have difficulty communicating.

We promote the use of Positive Behaviour Support in our training workshops for families and professionals understanding that all behaviour happens for a reason, and children who cannot communicate "I am hungry/thirsty/the lights are too bright/I'm too hot/too cold or I'm in pain WILL use their behaviour to draw attention to their distress. This is sometimes considered "challenging behaviour"

Understanding the function of a disabled childs behaviour and responding appropriatley eliminates the need for any aversive reactive strategies.

We also promote the use of a "Communication Passport" created by Kate and Jenny Sanger at www.mycommpass.com which is FREE for families to make themselves and use/share with anyone they wish.The passport is written in the child’s/young person's voice. It will contain valuable information about the individual's condition, how that condition affects their everyday lives and most importantly, how they communicate as this has an impact on how they behave.

Finally, we will create a bespoke Positive Behaviour Support Plan using a traffic light system with strategies on how to prevent the behaviour described as challenging in the first instance, through to pro-active and reactive strategies when the behaviour happens.

The passport will also contain photos and visual ideas on how best to support the individual. It is then printed in colour and laminated before it is given to the families and carers. The passport can be easily updated and can be sent electronically to anyone who is involved in the care of the individual concerned.

We want to give a voice to a child or young person who has none.
