Things to try

Here are some ideas that you could try with your child - things that you can make specific to your child's needs and what makes them respond.

Reward Charts

This is an example of how to manage behaviour around food.

You can see the reward here is a balloon.


Behaviour Charts

And here's another to chart overall behaviour for certain activities throughout the week.

If you would like any type of reward chart made to use at home please contact your Family Service co-ordinator.


Calm Down technique

Creating a Calm Down kit for your home can be a great idea.

Fill it with things that work to calm your child down, including some printed signs of feelings, to try and help your child explain their needs.
