SEMH needs are special educational need where a child communicates through behaviour in response to unmet social, emotional or mental health needs.

Children with SEMH needs can often have difficulties in managing their emotions or their behaviour. They can show inappropriate responses to their emotions. They can feel scared, anxious and misunderstood. Teaching assistants will need patience, understanding, and confidence with any behaviour that may be challenging.

Being a Teaching Assistant is helping those who need it most, whatever the needs of the children are.
