Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence-based approach that aims to enhance the quality of a participant’s life by reducing the frequency and severity of behaviours of concern. It involves collaboration with stakeholders to increase their ability to handle challenging situations and to develop strategies to prevent a particular behaviour from occurring.

CLA offers a hands-on approach, with practitioners spending significant time observing participants in various environments to understand their needs and communication requirements. They actively engage with other professionals and maintain open communication with therapists, family, and support workers. In case of incidents, practitioners provide hands-on support to participants and stakeholders.

CLA’s PBS practitioners offer assistance in

  • Developing a person centered behaviour support plan
  • Implementing strategies to meet participants’ needs
  • Making recommendations on environmental changes
  • Improving social engagement
  • Providing staff training, and
  • Offering ongoing 1:1 support and incident assistance
