Positive Behaviour Support

If you’re looking for Positive Behaviour Support services from a highly skilled team with on-the-ground experience, our team can help.

Behaviours of concern is defined as recurring behaviour that puts the safety of people at risk or results in challenges that limit a person’s ability to live a good life.  

The Uniting Positive Behaviour Support team recognises that behaviours of concern happen for a reason and are often used to communicate an unmet need. 

As a person-centred NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provider, we use evidence-based strategies that are responsive to a person’s needs to reduce the occurrence and impact of behaviours of concern. We work with our Participants and their circle of support to improve wellbeing and quality of life.  

At Uniting, our approach is based on overarching values, including choice, participation, and equality of opportunity.  

Services include: 

  • Interim Behaviour Support Plans: This may include regulated restrictive practices within a one-month period. 
  • Comprehensive Behaviour Support Plans: This includes conducting a Functional Behaviour Assessment and a Behaviour Support Plan within a 6-month period. 
  • Reviewing existing Behaviour Support Plans: This includes reviewing and evaluating the existing plan, including additional consultation with the Participant and support networks. 
  • Implementation: This includes training and coaching staff and carers to support the implementation of the plan.

Who’s eligible for support?

Uniting NDIS Participants or external NDIS Participants can access our Positive Behaviour Support services. If you are seeking to use funding within an NDIS plan, these services are ‘Capacity Building Supports’ under the support category of ‘Improved Relationships.’ 

If you are not eligible to access our services with an NDIS plan, you can access services on a fee-for-service basis. 

Our Positive Behaviour Support services are charged as a fee-for-service, with all charges aligned to the NDIS Price Guide, which is updated on an annual basis.
