Dear Parents,

I work with children and young people with a Learning Disability and their families. As you are aware these families have to manage many types of behaviour, some of which may be challenging. I am conducting a research project which aims to explore how online materials can help provide information to parents to support their understanding and management of these behaviours.

The online activity aims to help parents think about:
• Common reasons behind of behaviours
• Why some behaviours might continue
• Some strategies to manage behaviour

Please click the link below for further information and access to the study. If there are other parents you think would be interested in this project, please pass on this information.
