Positive Behaviour Support

Elements ABC provides Behaviour Support Services under the NDIS registration number: 4050127736.

We provide behaviour support services in line with the requirements of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

Our clinicians are qualified in:

  • The science of Applied Behaviour Analysis,
  • Person-centred care; and
  • Positive Behaviour Support

What is Positive Behaviour Support?

Positive Behaviour Support uses evidence to promote positive learning and adaptive skill development to improve a person’s quality of life.

Positive Behaviour Support provides person-centred strategies based on assessment of the individual and their environments.

The goal of assessment is to understand the purpose, or ‘function’ of the behaviour of concern.

The goal of intervention is to reduce the occurrence of behaviours of concern and minimise the use of restrictive practices.

We asked our staff: What do you like about being a Behaviour Support Practitioner?
