Learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges: service design and delivery


The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) have
produced this guideline to cover services for children, young people and
adults with a learning disability (or autism and a learning disability)
and behaviour that challenges.

With the aim of promoting lifelong approaches to supporting people
and their families and carers, focusing on prevention and early
intervention and minimising inpatient admissions, it should be read
alongside NICE’s challenging behaviour and learning disabilities: prevention and interventions (opens new window) report.

This secondary report “highlights the importance of understanding the
cause of behaviour that challenges, and performing thorough assessments
so that steps can be taken to help people change their behaviour and
improve their quality of life.”
