Abstract

Background

Methods

Results

Conclusions

Families of children with challenging behaviour often do not receive services and supports that they find helpful. Treatments provided are not always evidence-based. The “rationing” of services creates a danger of inequality of access. We need a more proactive approach to identifying and meeting the need for family support.
