What is Positive Behaviour Support?

Relevant for
  • Families and Carers
  • Other Professionals
  • Participants

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?
