On completion of the course, delegates should:

- be aware of the legislative and policy context within which adaptations are provided and understand how to use these to advocate for adaptations for children with cognitive impairments and challenging behaviours

- have discussed key principles of safeguarding and risk assessment, including issues of deprivation of liberty and parental zones of responsibility
- have explored modification of challenging behavior through use of environmental sensory profiling (related to social of model disability as opposed to medical model)
