Positive Behaviour Support
Our staff receive bespoke PBS training to enable them to identify, assess and develop individual Behaviour Support Plans. These are based on observation, and input from those involved in their life, in order to assess the individual’s emotional, social, health and environmental needs.
PBS works by understanding and predicting the frequency, intensity and likelihood of individual triggers for unwanted behaviours. This enables us to develop a series of strategies to meet the individual’s needs by reducing their anxiety and increasing their tolerance levels. This supports the person to effectively and safely achieve positive outcomes. This helps to enhance the individual’s lifestyle and wellbeing, as well as increase their ability to learn new skills without unnecessary restrictions.
Support Plans are then reviewed regularly to make sure they fully reflect the risks associated with the individual’s current needs, interests, health and wellbeing.
