What does a day in the life of a PBS practitioner look like?

No day is ever the same! One morning you could be out on the road, delivering support with clients and in the afternoon carrying out observations of a client at their day program, group home or school. Another day might involve working from home, providing support by videoconference, writing up Behaviour Support Plans and completing clinical notes. Click here to see what our team says!
