Physiotherapy for Challenging Behaviour

After a neurological event, some clients can be challenging to assess and participate with rehabilitation programmes.

We have extensive knowledge and experience with working with clients who present with

  • A lack of behaviour like lack of motivation and self drive following a head injury or stroke
  • Challenging behaviours like verbal and/or physical aggression

We have presented at various conferences and workshops on positive behavioural support and management when working with clients with challenging behaviours.

We use antecedent management and a graded step by step functional approach to therapy to maximise functional independence and community access for those clients who have ongoing neurophysiotherapy needs and challenging behaviours.
