Positive Behaviour Support is an evidence-based behaviour management method that helps people struggling with challenging behaviours. This support will help them to have fewer behaviours of concern and assist them in managing their emotions better. People with cognitive and intellectual disabilities can benefit from Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) as it helps their carers to understand the physical, social and environmental triggers that are causing complex behaviours. With Positive Behaviour Support, we can significantly minimise the use of restrictive practices and focus solely on improving the quality of life for people with disabilities.
The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission has laid down strict rules for Positive Behaviour Support providers and practitioners. PBS practitioners are of four levels depending on their expertise: Core, Proficient, Advanced and Specialist. All the Positive Behaviour Support providers are required to be registered with the NDIS Commission to ensure the safety and quality of services delivered to the participants. The NDIS recognises that the people who
are most knowledgeable about a person’s behaviour are the person themselves and their loved ones. Therefore, under the NDIS, the PBS practitioners work with the participants to develop support plans after talking to the participants, their family as well as their carers to ensure the best outcomes. This helps in creating individualised, inclusive and comprehensive PBS plans that focus on the unique needs of the participant.
