Everyone needs to express anger frustration, including children with special needs. How a parent or teacher responds can determine whether the situation is diffused or escalates.
A behaviour plan helps parents, teachers and professionals work together to ensure their response is consistent and appropriate:
Some children self-harm when they become angry and frustrated. Share any concerns about self-harm to ensure the child is kept safe and offered specialist support.
An effective communication system will include opportunities for children to express their emotions. From an early age children can be encouraged to recognise and respond to facial expressions. Circle time discussions with puppets and story characters help develop vocabulary for expressing emotion.
