What we provide?

What is PBS?

Positive Behaviour Support, or PBS, is an evidence-based behavioural science approach used in schools and residential/supported living setting. This is a system-wide approach meaning support is provided to a whole school or organisational system, to specific teaching groups/classroom or support service as well as to identified individuals, based on their level of need. The aim of PBS is to teach new strategies and skills to increase the quality of life of the individual, of those supporting the individual and the quality of the education/service systems in general too.

This approach involves:

  • Assessing ‘functional contextual fit’ (what is working to get needs met),
  • Increasing proactive strategies to increase quality of life and
  • Measure reduction in behaviours that challenge and restrictive practices as a by-product.
