Skill Building

We’ll always meet you where you’re at.

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a comprehensive approach to assessment, planning and intervention, that focuses on addressing a person’s needs, their environment and overall quality of life.  

It is all about working with the primary support team, including external people such as teachers and specialists, to:

1. Understand the behaviour

Beneath every behaviour is a need. When someone cannot express what they need, they will often use behaviours of concern to communicate. PBS aims to understand what a behaviour is trying to communicate, and find solutions to meet that need.

Completing a functional behaviour assessment (FBA), we will understand the function of the behaviour (reason).

1. Understand the behaviour

Beneath every behaviour is a need. When someone cannot express what they need, they will often use behaviours of concern to communicate. PBS aims to understand what a behaviour is trying to communicate, and find solutions to meet that need.

Using a functional behaviour analysis (FBA), we will understand the function of the behaviour (reason).

2. Collaborate to meet needs

To meet an individuals needs, we will collaborate to create a person-centred positive behaviour support plan. We will work as a team to look for ways to address the unmet needs that are driving the behaviour. These strategies will closely identify with your goals and strengths.

When needs have been met, the same behaviours won’t need to be used anymore.  

3. IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE

The next set of tasks involves the person-centred implementation of strategies and protocols outlined in the positive behaviour support plan. 

This is a crucial step in PBS, with key goals to improve relationships and quality of life.

We work with everyone to put things into action, and carry out regular reviews and evaluations based on feedback from the participant’s direct regular supports. 

Team work makes the dream work in PBS!
