This report is one of a series of resources from the project, "The Disability Act: Taking the Work Forward 2003-05," managed by the Learning and Skills Network (LSN) in partnership with NIACE and Skill, supported by the Disability Rights Commission and funded by the Learning and Skills Council. The report is a follow-up to 1998's "Ain't Misbehavin'," which strongly advocated the necessity of a whole organizational approach when working with learners who exhibit disruptive behavior in FE (further education) colleges. This report is relevant to the full range of staff working in FE colleges, adult and community learning organizations, work-based learning and offender contexts. Because of its strong emphasis on the importance of a whole-organizational approach, it is equally relevant to practitioners and managers. It surveys the steps necessary for organizations to review and revise their ways of including learners with challenging behavior, including: (1) creating consensus in the organization on what constitutes challenging behavior; (2) creating a clear and holistic framework that is supported at all levels of the organization; and (3) exploring what needs to take place at policy, procedural and delivery levels, and creating a clear plan for implementing these changes. (Contains 3 figures.) [This publication results from the Learning and Skills Development Agency's strategic programme of research and development, funded by the Learning and Skills Council.
