Some behaviours may be linked to medical conditions, disabilities or additional needs.

Bad behaviour maybe a result of boredom or inactivity or on the flip side too much energetic activity. You can positively change by working to offer a dynamic, fun and varied programme.

Factors from outside e.g. bullying, family and social situations or issues that are personal to them that they may not have expressed to you.
