Promoting positive behaviour
when supporting people with a learning disability and people with autism

If you work with people with a learning disability or people with autistic spectrum condition and are studying for a health and social care qualification, or you want the right information to help your personal development, then Promoting positive behaviour is for you.

This book puts the person at the centre of the support you give. It uses real life stories, activities and thinking points to cover all of the learning outcomes and is full of practical examples of how to apply the ideas to the support you provide.

This is a great book for anyone working with people who have a learning disability and behaviour that challenges. I would strongly recommend this book for any nurses or student nurses working in the area of learning disabilities.
