Children and young people often have times where adults may struggle with their behaviour. We have put together some resources on ways to support your child, while managing difficult or challenging behaviours.

Sometimes our thoughts and feelings can look like behaviours. There are more resources in the emotional wellbeing section which may be helpful in managing behaviour that can be challenging.

We have also put together a series of videos for parents on Understanding and Managing Difficult Feelings in Autism, to help you in supporting your child with their emotional regulation and behaviour.
