The intervention and approach in concern to the specific needs of disabled, ill health condition and ill behavior person are very important. Notably, it is more important for the health care professionals and requisite personals to understand the competencies and professional attributes. This will not only ensure that specific and requisite care is being provided, but the wellbeing of the needy can also be addressed. Consider a case, where severe physical damage have occurred, it is necessary for the concerned health care professionals to identify the plan, the implementation and the evaluation of the necessary regime (Chan, 2010). For the ill health conditioned person, it is necessary to assess and identify the specific health issues and provide suitable treatment option and medical intervention. Similarly, for mentally challenged person, it is more important to understand their need and perception, so as to give favorable condition which is suitable, safe and pleasant. These approach are essential as because to boost the morale of the concerned individual, provides them satisfaction and necessary health related support.
To the other part, it is also important to take care of the communication skills. This include both the verbal as well as the non-verbal communication. These communication skills are important to understand and identify the specific need of the concerned person. Importantly, the same is also essential to discuss and share the information of the concerned issue among the health care professionals (Goodwin, 2012). For the part of government agencies and legislative agencies involved in making the framework and necessary guidelines, it is important to make flexible and suitable frameworks for the benefit of the needy and safety of the disabled persons.
Similar to the discussed parameters, it is more important to frame a strategy of intervention and care. The said concern is important as because it will help in devising effective and efficacious plans, necessary implementation and changes that are crucial of the care. on the other hand, the same is operative for the monitoring of the plans and make the whole scenario worthy for the benefit of the concerned person.
Apart from the given case scenarios, the specific need for the disabled person also lies in content to safety and assistive technology terms. Safety in this regard is important as it is focused with the effectiveness in measures for health restoration and health management. The concept of risk assessment and identification is par suitable in this paradigm, which ensures necessary care and intervention regime is available for the patients and needful person of the community (Rosenberg, 2011). Consider another circumstance where independent living is concerned, especially for the old age people. It is necessary to take care of the hygiene, cleanliness aspects, the medication and diet precaution, the consciousness and careful approach in educating them regarding the instrument in use and concern cautions. It is hence the role of supporting personals is not only concerned for the responsibilities related to medication and care, but is also considered to take care of the emotional need, psychological attributes and related diverse circumstances. Participation and collaboration among the various professionals in this regard is also crucial. This will ensure that the information regarding special care and need is conveyed to appropriate referrals and necessary measures are being confirmed (Thoits, 2011, pp.145).
Impact with respect to the support for the individuals with specific need is referred to the necessary care, treatment approach, strategy for the care and intervention plans and requisite services. It is obvious that the objective behind all such scenarios are concerned with the beneficial aspect of community health and wellbeing. To the other part, it is also concerned with the equality of individual members of the community, which helps in opportunities for assess to all in conjunction to health related care and services (Andersen, 2011).

4.1. Explain different concepts of challenging behavior
Challenging behavior demands for specific and understanding type of intervention. This in other words, can be said that precise and accurate measurement is needed to meet the diverse demands for any particular health concern. For the part of health and social care professionals, it is important to understand the emotional, psychological, physiological and other societal needs. The understand of this kind among the professionals can only leads to identification and implementation of appropriate measure. Concisely it will also help in making the paradigm more effective and supportive for the development of the concerned person (Barnes-Holmes & Barnes-Holmes, 2011, pp.4).
The challenging behavior often needs identification and assessment of concerned risk. These risks can be related to diet, medication, care and communication, depending upon the situation and concerned health scenario. These concerns are related to learning disabilities, dyslexia, amnesia, psychosis, autism and other physical injuries related to brain parts. It should be noted that in many a circumstances and cases the term challenging behavior is misinterprets as violence, aggression and irritability. Whereas to be more accurate, both of the issues are concerned with the challenging behavior, in case if the concern is consistent for longer period and is resulting in serious hazardous effect on life and mental state (Chandler & Dahlquist, 2014). It is hence the concept is concerned with biological, social, environmental and psychological state of individuals.
4.2. Describe the potential impact of challenging behavior on health and social care organizations
The impact of these challenges is related to the objective and concern of such organization, which is related to individual wellbeing and societal progress. To be more particular the present aspect of discussion can be oriented with respect to the care and services that are necessary to meet the care and service demands in conjunction to challenging behavior. For any concerned personal or health and social professionals, it is more important to have effective communication skills, strategies to handle and rectify the situation. common framework for related issues can be termed as behavioral strategies, which includes applied behavior analysis, operant conditioning and positive behavior support to the concerned person. Prior to the intervention and management strategy, it is important to build trustworthy relationship with the individual of specific need as well as their family members, friend or carer. Such relationship and partnership model will not only help in educating and managing the necessary strategy, but will also help in self-care, self-management for any specific and diverse need.
Other than this, as discussed in earlier section, the impact is also concerned with increase in competencies and learning for the professionals. The results of increased competencies and ideology related to the care is reflected with respect to positive patient outcome and corresponding wellbeing (Brownson, 2010).
4.3. Analyze strategies for working with challenging behaviors
Some of the key attributes to be incorporated in the strategies are related to educating, diet plan, and medication management, facilitation of suitable environment, caring for the emotion and psychological states, and consideration of any ethical concern. It is important to mention that challenging behavior is often accompanied with diverse situation and scenario. The emotional and psychological state is often unpredictable and unreliable for the professionals also, and hence there is equal demand of optimum care and management.
The strategies to meet the challenging behavior include certain key questions such as what are the challenging behavior, reason behind the challenging behavior, managing strategies of behavior. Apart from this, the scope also includes the linking between disability and behavioral attributes. In simple term any strategy in this regard should follow a cycle of (i) concerned problem, (ii) plan for the same, (iii) implementation and change needed and (iv) monitoring and evaluation. A support strategy based on the positive aspects of the individual have the maximum changes of achieving the positive results. On the contrary, it is also essential to think for the alternative plans and measures. These are important for the condition where changes and necessary implementation furthermore for the care is not suitable for the concerned individuals. last but not the least, it is more important that the care plan should have a timeframe and time limit associated with it, which will make the process effective (Chandler & Dahlquist, 2014).
