We use Positive Behaviour Support Plans to aid in improving an NDIS participant’s behaviour. Our process begins with empathetically understanding any challenging behaviour, which can often be complex. These behavioral issues may impact learning, development, relationships, and the overall safety of the individual and those they interact with.

Challenging behaviour can take many forms and can include physical and verbal aggression towards others, damaging property and self injury. 

The Positive Behaviour Support plan is developed using  evidence-based research so that the treatment can focus on where the patient needs it the most.
