What is

Positive Behaviour Support?

Positive behaviour support (PBS) is a proactive approach to supporting children, families and support staff with behaviours of concern.

PBS understands that all challenging behaviour has a purpose or reason (this is called the ‘function’) and it is not random or meaningless.

All aspects of the child, their environment and their support network are considered to provide a holistic assessment and intervention. Each Behaviour support plan is individual and is tailored to the participant and their lives.
