Challenging Behaviour in TSC

Who can take part?

Children with TSC aged between 2 - 15 years who show challenging behaviour and low verbal ability. 

Why is this research being done?

Previous research has suggested that some children with TSC have increased risk of developing challenging behaviour (self-injury/aggression/property destruction). This can be difficult both for those showing the behaviour and those who care for them. We would like to understand more about this type of behaviour in TSC and what factors might be related to it. 

What will it involve?

We will carry out assessments of your child’s challenging behaviour and their level of ability. You will be asked to fill out some questionnaires about your child. This will involve a one day appointment. This can take place at your home or you can visit the university, if you prefer. You will receive an individualised feedback report about your child’s results.
