Welcome to the
Positive Approaches to Support
This website is for families who care for children, young people or adults with a learning disability or developmental difficulty (including those who are autistic). You will find information about positive approaches for supporting your own wellbeing and supporting choice, independence and communication for your relative. You will also find information about how to support your relative if they display behaviours that challenge.
There is a mixture of reading material, videos and printable tools, with links to other resources and organisations. Everything here has been created by experienced family carers and professionals working together. We hope families will find this website valuable both during and after the Covid-19 lockdown.
