Code: LAC/21/008 Speech, Language and Communication Needs and challenging behaviour

There is a well-researched and clearly demonstrated link between Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) and challenging behaviour. Research also shows us that care experienced children are much more likely than their peers to experience SLCN. We know that addressing SLCN, which are often hidden needs, can reduce challenging behaviour by meeting the underlying need. This session will introduce you to some of the reasons for the higher incidence of SLCN in children we care for in terms of how language and communication develop. We will present some resources we have developed with a range of services across the Local Authority to support schools in identifying and addressing these needs’

Code: LAC/21/016 Session 3: Entering Care – The real reasons children enter care

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session explores the real-life experience of young people entering care. When young people enter care, it can seem like the system takes a young person’s identity and gives them a new one, projecting them into a confusing world with new terminologies and often leaving them with little understanding of what’s happening. Systems are set up to safeguard children, which can sometimes leave families in cycles of trauma and negative family dynamics. Services become overwhelmed with the increasing numbers of young people entering care and become more stretched. Children feel confused and lost in the system; parents are hurt and often frightened, whilst practitioners are under pressure to ensure all young people are safe. Families deserve to be supported and children have a right to understand what’s happening to them. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.
