“Assess and Manage Risk to own and others safety when dealing with Challenging behavior
It is important to manage risk and also the safety of others at the time of dealing with the challenging behavior as it helps to consider the procedures and policies that are given in the school related with the behavior, health and safety and restraints policy. It also helps to enable to evaluate and manage risk for ourselves and also for others. To manage the risk is considered as a practical way to reduce the difficult and dangerous behavior and it helps to set against the background of the procedures and policies in the school (Geller, 2016). It also takes into consideration general risk assessment of the environment and also of the individual risk assessment that focuses on the needs of an individual. The risk strategies take into consideration the use of physical intervention in which it has been seen that it helps offer proper training to the learners who are conducting their activities in the high risk environment and also it control the movement of a children when it is required so that they can be protected from the harm. This can also help the children in doing their studies in a proper manner and can also give direction so that the activities can be completed in a right direction. The risk can be related with the involvement of the vulnerable parts like neck and eyes or it can create hypertension for the children (Elder, 2018).
It can be analyzed that there are various restraint techniques which are showcase an unacceptable risk when focus is given on the children and young people. The technique focuses on the seated double embrace in which there are two individuals of the staff who force an individual into a sitting position and to learn something with pressure. Next is the double basket hold in which the individuals are involved who are holding the hands or the arms above the chest and the last one is related with the nose distraction in which it has been seen that a sharp upward force is given on the nose (Glendon, Clarke and McKenna, 2016).
It is important that some individuals with special educational needs in special schools should be restrained on the continuous basis. Also in this case, good practices are also showcased that will be first recorded and then conveyed to the parents. If a child is showing challenging behavior then it consists of verbal or physical abuse or behavior which is not acceptable. Therefore, in this case it is important for the teachers to focus on managing and reducing the challenging behavior of the children. It is important to focus on own safety and also safety of others so that every child can be secured in an easy manner and also with proper strategies that help to manage the challenging the behavior of the child. The strategies related to rewards and offer choices should be considered so that positive behavior can be created within the children (Crone, Hawken, and Horner, 2015)
