Why do they do that? 9 – 18 years - Ballarat Regional Carer Training Expo

Specialist topics

This session focuses specifically on understanding and responding to behaviour in children / young people 9 - 18 years of age. We will look at  how child and adolescent development can influence behaviour and the ways to understand and respond appropriately to meet the needs of children in this age cohort.

10am - 10.30am: Registration & Morning Tea

10.30am - 2.30pm: Why do they do that? Understanding and responding to behaviour in children / young people 9 - 18 years of age

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 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 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 the need to use more restrictive or punishment driven strategies is also reduced.

Lunch is provided
