Children's Neurodiversity Nursing Service
The service provides behaviour management advice and support for parents of children diagnosed with a Learning Disability and/or Autism. This is a specialist service and thus universal services should be accessed initially. Typically the service provides advice as follows:
- sleep management
- management of physical aggression and self injury
- uncooperative behaviours
- sensory related behaviours
- Risk management
Support will be provided via telephone, video and clinic appointments. High risk cases will be supported via home visits.
A baseline behaviour assessment and if required more detailed functional assessments will be provided and a Positive Behaviour Support Plan identified in collaboration with the family. Parental health and wellbeing will be an integral part of the support provided.
