Any good?

Explain the importance of identifying patterns of behaviour or triggers to challenging behaviour when establishing proactive or reactive strategies to be used


The importance of identifying patterns of behaviour or triggers that result in challenging behaviour is that early warning signs can be spotted and acted upon before the behaviour happens or escallates.

Some identifications of a precursor to challenging behaviour are tense muscles, pacing, sweating, facial expressions and increased rate of breathing. These can be difficult to spot in young children. A young person may exhibit changes in their ‘baseline’ behaviour or mood.

Factors that can lead to mood changes are:-

• Lack of choice – ensure there are plenty of activities to choose from

• Boredom through lack of environment – ensure a good, well set out environment

• Limited communication and understanding – ensure you engage children in conversation

• Over stimulation through noise and general disruption to routine – a calm environment is needed

• Overcrowding – if too many children around one activity then redirect some to another activity

• Antagonism, aggression or provocation by others – the child causing the disruption needs to be removed from the situation before it escalates

• Frustration – a child may get frustrated if they can’t do a certain activity, adult intervention will diffuse this situation as the activity can be shown to the child

• Physical illness – the child will need extra support if they are unwell

• Emotional upset due to bereavement – the child will need extra support

Hope this helps. I am up to question 4.2 on this unit so if you've done any after this i'd be grateful for any help. What other option units are you doing?

Hi, the reply given by midge99 is very helpful.

Can you recall examples from your setting/placement where conflict between children can almost be predicted/expected - two children wanting the singular new toy car, three children each with a doll and only 2 blankets to wrap them in. One child covers ears and shouts loudly whilst a song is being played on a cd player. Plate of food is thrown across a room after a meal is served. Group of children charge around a room knocking others over. Child laughs and kicks an adult during a conversation. A child feeling unwell, experiencing bereavement may respond more emotionally to situations than would ordinarily be expected.

These are all possible behaviours that proactive practice can help to resolve.

Tug of war over resources - evaluate what's happening, consider purchasing/sourcing additional items to minimise arguments, remove the originals or work out how everyone can resolve problems by organising sharing. Discuss dietary needs & food preferences with child/ren, parents, and plan food sampling activities to expand variety of tastes & textures, ensure foods are served that do not trigger negative behaviours.

Less engaging environments can produce 'stormin campaigners' as children occupy space with gross motor/whole body play. Ask the children what they're playing, see what resources would focus their play and help make it less intrusive to others. Is there a large space already available for play that children have moved away from?

Page 95+ of the level 3 CYPW handbook provides greater depth for research

Hope this helps a little more
