trust me. don't click on the face

This website is just a little place to share things I’ve written over the years about intellectual disability, autism, and behaviour that challenges.

I consider challenging behaviour to most often be about two things: complaining and communication. It follows we must work to understand the message of challenging behaviour in order to support people better. People cannot help but let us know how we're doing.

What most people need is good support and understanding, not restraints and medication. Most people need local support, not hospitals or assessments miles from home.

You can purchase books I've written or contributed to here.
