Emotional changes – normal

Puberty brings emotional and behavioural changes as well.


Puberty brings a lot of changes for children with intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorder, not just  body changes but emotional and behavioural changes as well. You might be familiar with the stereotype of the moody teenager during puberty, but sometimes it can be hard to know when emotional changes are normal or require some extra support. This can be especially difficult if your child has complex communication or support needs which can impact their ability to express their need for support.
