New website launched - Paving the Way

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation and the Council for Disabled Children announce the launch of a website called ‘Paving the Way.’ The website aims to provide families, professionals, staff, and commissioners with information about how to reduce challenging behaviour and to improve the wellbeing of children with learning disabilities.

Resources on the website include stories about what families have found helpful, case studies and examples of good practice to inspire commissioners and professionals to develop better services, as well as other tools, information, and resources. The site also contains a blog which we will be updating regularly with new project information, new resources, and developments on a national level around early intervention.

Information for professionals

The Learning Disability Professional Senate, which includes the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy has worked with the Paving the Way team to develop:

  • A simple poster, to signpost families to a local team who can support them and to our website to find out more.
  • A leaflet suitable for all frontline professionals and staff, including Physiotherapists, to raise awareness of challenging behaviour and appropriate responses and to signpost them to more information.

These resources are free to download at http://pavingtheway.works/whats-new/where-do-we-go-for-help/.  They will be useful for anyone who, as part of their role, may come into contact with children with learning disabilities or autism. 

 For more information contact earlyinterventionproject@thecbf.org.uk.
