Are you finding your child's behaviour hard to manage?

Would you like to reduce their challenging behaviour?

Discover the step-by-step process, reasons behind the behaviour and how to teach your child to identify and regulate their emotions.

Often when your child experiences difficulties in identifying and responding to their feelings, it’s easy to become stressed and overwhelmed.


You watch them become extremely frustrated, upset and sometimes even highly excited, resulting in challenging behaviour, such as hitting, kicking, biting or dropping to the floor. It’s as if they’re 'misbehaving'.

This of course, is very distressing for your child,

as well as for yourself.

You of course simply want to make sure your child is as happy as possible!

As a parent, teacher or children's professional, it can stretch your patience, leave you feeling like you’re losing control and not knowing what step to take next. However, the thing to remember is they are not doing this on purpose.
They are struggling to know how to respond to their feelings and how to communicate this, which is why it’s so important for you to learn how to help them regulate their emotions.


Emotional regulation is the ability to recognise and respond to our own emotions.

Children may behave in ways that we don't quite understand. I've spent many hours trying to work out why a child is behaving the way they are. All behaviour communicates something. As humans, we do things for a reason.

All behaviour has a purpose.

To find out how to understand it, I invite you to

Hi, I’m Steph Reed, your teacher!

Over the past 12 years, I have taught many autistic children, with a wide variety of abilities and complex needs.

I now help schools and services ensure high quality autism provision and practice, enabling children to achieve and maximise their potential.

I have tailored these online courses to give you accessible, and bite-size, background knowledge in evidence-based approaches, as well as the practical understanding in how to implement strategies and importantly, ensure impact on learning.

This has been the case in the growing knowledge and skills of the staff she has worked alongside, the physical environment provided for pupils with ASD and the outcomes for those pupils"
