Where behaviour problems exist, it is because the child has an underlying need that they are attempting to meet in the best way they know how. With Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), we use scientifically validated methods to try to understand what that unmet need is, and to have that need met so that there is literally no need for the individual to resort to behaviours that cause a problem to themselves or others around them.

Meeting the unmet need may involve changing the individual’s environment, teaching the individual new skills and/or changing the supports we provide to the individual. The end result is that the person’s quality of life has improved, the behaviour problems reduce and therefore the need to use more restrictive or punishment driven strategies is eliminated.

As the developmental level and age of a child impacts significantly the behavioural presentation and support needs of a young person. this program focuses specifically on understanding and responding to behaviour in children 9 - 18 years of age. There will be a focus on how child and adolescent development for this age group can influence behaviour, what is typical in this age cohort, and the ways to understand and respond appropriately to meet the needs of children 9 - 18 years of age.
