Positive Behaviour Support

Allied Health 2U is a registered NDIS organisation for behaviour support and provides behaviour support through the NDIS support categories, Improved Relationships. 

Behaviour support involves working with participants who have behaviours of concern and require beahviour support interventions.

Behaviour support practitioners are the individuals who provide behaviour support. Behaviour support practitioners have a background in a mental health related profession such as, Psychology, Counselling, Psychotherapy, Rehabilitation counselling or mental health Occupational Therapy.

Behaviour support therapists as part of their assessment of individuals who require behaviour therapy, provide positive behaviour support interventions to assist those around the individuals who has behaviours of concern to be able to better support them.

Our behaviour support practitioners work closely with our mobile occupational therapists and mobile psychologists.

In the cases of older adults who have behaviours of concern and have improved relationships funding, our Positive Behaviour Support practitioners work most closely with our mental health occupational therapists

What is involved in providing behaviour support?

A behaviour support pracititioner will initially come out to see the individual who requires behaviour support interventions and/or a behaviour support plan.

The first step involves the behaviour support practitioner completing a thorough assessment to assess the individuals behaviours and noting down all behaviours of concern. The behaviour support practitioner will communicate with the participant directly as well as other who the participant spends greatest time with.

Once the behaviours of concern have been identified, the behaviour support practitioner will identify assessments that those around the individuals who has the behaviours of concern can complete.

The behaviour support practitioners will then complete a behaviour assessment report which will details all the relevant behaviour of concern. After completing the behaviour assessment report then behaviour support practitioner will complete a behaviour support plan which will provide guidance on how to best assist/manage the behaviours of concern.

A flow chart for the steps in providing behaviour support is shown below:
