Network Training for a Boy with Learning Disabilities and Behaviours That Challenge
Cooper, Kate; McElwee, Jennifer
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v44 n4 p337-344 Dec 2016
Background: Network Training is an intervention that draws upon systemic ideas and behavioural principles to promote positive change in networks of support for people defined as having a learning disability. To date, there are no published case studies looking at the outcomes of Network Training. Materials and Methods: This study aimed to investigate the impact of Network Training on a network of support for a boy labelled as having learning disabilities and challenging behaviour, including sexually harmful behaviour. Participants in the Network training completed two questionnaires; one designed for this study and The Challenging Behaviours Attributions Scale at two baseline points and following the intervention. Results: Network Training led to positive changes in the confidence, understanding, strengths focus and joint working of the individual's network. There was no significant change in participants' CHABA scores. Conclusion: This case study provides preliminary evidence that Network Training may be of benefit to children labelled as having learning disabilities, and merits further investigation.
