Videos On Demand: Responding Well to Challenging Behaviours

Based on the two-day Responding Well to Challenging Behaviours workshop facilitated by Ann Greer, we present an On Demand Webinar Series which aims to encourage participants to understand more about the situations in which people with 'challenging behaviour' find themselves and explore how they can best respond to support the person. Ann Greer, a parent from regional Queensland, is a behavioural support consultant who is passionate about ensuring people with disabilities get the best opportunities to live the good life. Her son is her greatest teacher.

These on-demand videos provide practical insights & tools, so that people can be supported with compassion, collaboration & respect. They are a useful resource for families, friends & paid supporters & can also be used for training and development. This series can be purchased as a 7 day rental or as a 30 day rental.
