Behaviour, emotions and coping

Sometimes people with cerebral palsy (CP) can behave in a way that is difficult to manage

This challenging or concerning behaviour may happen because of pain, frustration, communication issues, big life changes, and grief. Behaviour can change over time. It looks different for different people. Research suggests that if you understand the cause of behaviour, it’s easier to manage. Managing behaviour and mental health is a big part of wellbeing. There are evidence-based interventions and supports known to be effective.
