Challenging Behaviour and Early Intervention

Evaluation of Parent Intervention for Challenging Behaviour in Children with Intellectual Disabilities (EPICC-ID)

A trial to evaluate whether, compared to treatment as usual, level 4 Stepping Stones Triple P (SSTP) delivered over 9 weeks, reduces challenging behaviour in children with moderate to severe intellectual disability at 12 months post randomisation and to undertake an economic evaluation to assess the cost-effectiveness of the intervention compared to treatment as usual.

Does your child have delays in development and challenging behaviour (e.g. screaming, hitting themselves or others, breaking and damaging things, not listening to you)?

Is your child aged 3-5 years?

We are testing a programme that helps parents of children with those problems called Stepping Stones Triple P in a national study.


To find out more please see our materials section of the website or email us directly at epicc-id@ucl.ac.uk. Recruitment for the study is now closed. 

The study is taking place in North and South London, the North East and North West of England.
