Disabled Children's Service training offer

On behalf of the Disabled Children Service, the Behavioural Inclusion Service within CAMHS LDT (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) offer tailored training opportunities.

The training provided focuses on understanding behaviours via Positive Behaviour Support. The aim is to help trainees to identify what children or young people need to feel safe and secure and give them the best chance possible to feel content and to learn. It helps trainees to:

  • Gain a clear overview of a child’s needs
  • Develop a framework to support understanding
  • Have a clearer view of how a child is experiencing the world
  • Think about aspects of their development and understanding and how this changes their behaviour

Disability groups include:

  • Intellectual (Learning) Developmental Disability
  • Mental Health
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Attachment Disorder.

The training is offered to short break providers with the intention they provide an inclusive environment within which a child or young person can enjoy short break activities. This includes voluntary and charitable groups, in addition to local authority faith and the private sector.

There are free introductory set courses, and bespoke training, which means that if you attend an introductory course and require additional support you will receive tailored training and support from a qualified CAMHS professional.

There is a programme of opportunities available or Behavioural Inclusion Service can offer specific training for your organisation.

All our training is provided free of charge. However, candidates who have applied but do not attend or give adequate notice, will be charged a cancellation fee of £50.00. At least 24 hours’ notice of cancellation is required
