The term challenging behaviour describes a range of behaviours that can put the person displaying the behaviour or those around them at risk.

Behaviour that challenges is a way to communicate unmet needs when an individual struggles to communicate their needs in other ways often due to factors such as anxiety, neglect, abuse, learning disabilities and conditions like dementia.

Behaviours that challenge include but are not limited to; physical, verbal, and non-verbal.

All behaviour is a form of communication and there is a reason for all behaviour.
