Network Training is an intervention that involves getting all people involved in supporting an individual with learning disabilities together with the aim to promote positive change.  In this case study, network training involved getting the all adults involved in supporting the child together to increase understanding of his challenging behavior and to work out how to promote resilience both in the child and those around him and to make plans to move forward.

The effect of the Network Training was investigated using questionnaires completed both before and after the training.  Overall in this case, Network Training was found to be effective in increasing the adults involved knowledge and understanding of the child and his behavior in the short term at least.
