Positive Behaviour Support is a comprehensive approach to assessment, planning and intervention that focuses on addressing a person’s needs, home environment and overall quality of life. Positive Behaviour Support is about working with you, your family, and support staff to develop a shared understanding about why you have a need to engage in behaviours of concern. Interventions are developed to teach skills and safeguard your dignity and quality of life in a way that reduces the occurrence and impact of behaviours of concern and minimises the use of restrictive practices.

How our Behaviour Support Practitioners can help

Our Behaviour Support Practitioners help people with a disability aged 18 or over in Brisbane and surrounding areas – including Ipswich, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast, Toowoomba and Warwick – to manage behaviour and increase their quality of life. This may involve helping you understand your daily life by using clearer ways of communicating (such as picture schedules) and adapting the environment so it meets your needs (such as reduced noise).

Our focus is on improving your lifestyle so there are more enjoyable or interesting activities to stay involved and connected with your community, by identifying activities of interest. We come to your home or community to work alongside you, your family, and support staff to assist with positive relationships.

We can help with:

  • Understanding daily life
  • Adapting an environment
  • Improving lifestyle
  • Connecting with people
