Behaviour Management

SEN = Difficult behaviour. No not the case…………….. most of the time.

However to help those working with SEN, there are a few more triggers you might need to be aware of before establishing behaviour plans. Below are some things to be mindful of when supporting pupils and directing staff:

HOW YOU KNOW I AM HAPPY AND RELAXED  (eg how my body and face look, sounds I make,  things I might do)

THINGS I LIKE (eg hobbies, interests, people, food, places)

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP ME (eg use Total Communication, give me peace and quiet)

HOW YOU KNOW I AM BEGINNING TO FEEL ANXIOUS/LESS HAPPY  (eg how my body and face look, sounds I make,  things I might do)

THINGS TO AVOID (Triggers eg dislikes things/places)

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP ME  (remove the triggers – eg think about whether I can cope knowing in advance if something is going to change)

HOW YOU KNOW I AM REALLY UNHAPPY/ANXIOUS/ANNOYED (eg shouting, crying, slamming doors, self-harming, withdrawing)

THINGS TO AVOID (Triggers eg dislikes – do I need to be on my own or with someone?)

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP ME (remove the triggers  eg reduce noise,  do I need to be on my own or with someone)
