Positive Behaviour Support: a Quality of Life intervention

  • March 10th, 2021 9:30 am

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence-based approach to support people with disability to experience improved quality of life. There are many services and practitioners offering PBS however, if delivered incorrectly, recipients of behaviour support interventions are at risk of aversive and/or restrictive practices.

This workshop provides an overview of what is needed for PBS interventions to be delivered in an ethical manner with a person with disability’s goals and wellbeing as the primary focus.

Who is this for:

  • Support coordinators
  • NDIS allied health professionals
