Some schools have Family Support Workers who are linked to the school, and work with families to support them in managing challenging behaviours at home. You can speak to your SENCo about whether you are able to get support from a Family Support Worker.
Sometimes a child's behaviour might be related to an autism or communication need. If your child's inability to communicate their needs in the classroom is impacting on their learning experience at school, the Speech, Language, Communication and Autism team may be able to help. Your SENCo can refer your child or young person to this team.
