Positive Behaviour Support in Brisbane

Positive Behaviour Support in Greater Brisbane and QLD

We can help you and your loved ones with Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) in Brisbane. We support NDIS participants in the greater Brisbane metropolitan area, as well as NDIS participants further away from Brisbane, on the Gold Coast, Ipswich, Stanthorpe, Wide Bay, Cairns and Townsville.  

What is Positive Behaviour Support?

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) improves quality of life by building support strategies, skills and behaviours to meet your needs and goals. We work with you to define behaviours of concern and create a behaviour support plan. We have a big focus on implementing and coaching, so that means from the beginning you're getting hands-on support while we build a plan.

We also work with you to assess, plan and manage regulated restrictive practices under the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission. We work with providers to identify and appropriately respond to complex situations to maintain quality of life and safety for all involved. 

Through Positive Behaviour Support, we help individuals and families in Brisbane with a person-centred approach. This means we help you participate in your support and we make sure the focus is on you, your interests and goals.

Positive Behaviour Support recognises that people communicate in different ways and can show behaviours for all sorts of reasons and that there is a function to behaviour. For example, if a person shouts, they shout for a reason — perhaps they weren’t heard the first time, or they’re afraid, anxious or uncomfortable. We help you understand behaviour and how to enrich quality of life.

Where do we meet for Positive Behaviour Support?

We come to you! There is no need for you to travel outside of Brisbane or to a clinic for PBS. We'll travel to you, whether you're in Brisbane city, or further away in Ipswich, Southport, Maroochydore, Strathpine or Springwood. 

We also support NDIS participants in regional parts of Queensland, including Stanthorpe, Bundaberg, Townsville and Cairns. 

We can meet with you and your support team to talk about your Positive Behaviour Support. We can also review important information and work on your behaviour support plan (PBSP).

How does telepractice work?

If we meet using telepractice, we will connect using phone calls or video calls or even online chat. We might even combine in-person visits with telepractice. You can learn more about telepractice or telePBS here.

What if my support team isn’t in Brisbane, but I am?

If the people important to you can't make it to our meeting, we can connect with them through telepractice. This means we can invite people who are important to you to join us over the phone or through a video call.

With Positive Behaviour Support, it’s important that people who are important to you are included in your support and they take part in training and coaching. We can deliver training and coaching in-person in Brisbane, or through live or pre-recorded videos.
