Consumer Factsheet: Designing home environments for people with aggressive or self-injurious behaviour
Authors: Lisa Hodges and Catherine Bridge
Published: 2nd October 2007
People who experience problems with cognition may display aggressive or self-injurious behaviours for a variety of reasons. They may be unable to communicate a need in another way, frustrated with an environment that is too complex to negotiate, or they may be attempting to remove themselves from a situation or environment that they find unpleasant. In the case of self-injurious behaviour, the individual may also be attempting to provide some sensory stimulation to their experience within the environment.
