24 April 2023
Meet us at the Hunter Disability Expo in May! Our Behaviour Support Practitioners Alex Lee, Brett Sams and Liss Burton will be there to answer all your questions about Positive Behaviour Support (PBS).
You can find out what PBS is, how it can help you and how you can use your NDIS Plan to access Positive Behaviour Support. Alex, Brett and Liss are more than happy to answer your questions, like what PBS might look like on a practical level and examples of strategies that might help you or your loved one.
Alex said “The Hunter Disabilty Expo is always a great event, with such a friendly atmosphere. I look forward to being able to meet face-to-face and answer any questions people have about PBS, the services we can provide and discuss how we can best support them.”
