OUR EXPERIENCED BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT PRACTITIONERS HELP YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES TO UNDERSTAND AND COPE WITH CHALLENGING BEHAVIOURS.
Our Behaviour Support Practitioners provide various assessments to assist in understanding
the nature and function of challenging behaviours.
We understand that when people are happily engaged, doing the things they like, with the people they like, they tend not to use challenging behaviours.
We can assist in increasing the quality of life of children and teens by actively working
with individuals and their stakeholders on strategies to help them live their best life.
What is a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)?
The overall aim of PBS is to improve a person’s quality of life and reduce or eliminate behaviours of harm to self or others
Our Practitioners apply evidence-based strategies to better understand each person they support to enable them to meet their individual needs.
We work collaboratively with individuals and their stakeholders, such as families, teachers and support workers, to understand the function of the behaviours and provide strategies to meet the need of their behaviour.
WHY would a child or young person need specialised behaviour support?
The most common reasons include:
- restrictive practices in place (including chemical, environmental, mechanical or physical).
BENEFITS OF Positive Behaviour Supports (PBS).
Contact & Booking Form
Depending on the complexity of each case, developing a Positive Behaviour Support Plan (PBSP) can take between 3 – 6 months to author.
Step 1. Referral and Intake
Contact 07 5293 9090 for a referral form or to discuss individual needs.
You will receive a Service Agreement outlining the terms of Behaviour Support.
Upon receipt of a signed Service Agreement, the referrer will be contacted to complete an intake session.
You will be matched with a Behaviour Support Practitioner.
Step 2. Collaboration and Info Gathering with Stakeholders
Your Behaviour Support Practitioner will engage with the individual stakeholders and support network, such as Support Coordinators, family members, support workers, Supported Independent Living providers, local GP and others.
Collaboration is a key part in the development of a Positive Behaviour Support Plan (PBSP).
Please note, Positive Behaviour Support is not 1:1 psychological therapy.
Step 3. Drafting the Positve Behaviour Support Plan (PBSP)
After collecting behaviour recording data, the Behaviour Support Practitioner will develop a tailored plan which includes identifying the function(s) behind a challenging behaviour, as well as developing appropriate strategies to best support the person.
The development of a PBSP can take between 3 to 6 months. Our practitioners will analyse the behaviour recording data, contact key stakeholders and modify plans so that it is tailored to each person and their individual needs.
Step 4. Implementation and Training
Once the PBSP is developed and you are NDIS funded for implementation and training, our Behaviour Support Practitioners will contact you to implement and train out the plan.
