This approach incorporates detailed observation and analysis of a person’s environment and behaviour, followed with strategies to teach and reinforce alternative behaviours.

PBS is now recognised worldwide as the best practice for responding to behaviours of concern.

These plans may also be funded in NDIS plans, which means that child and family systems practitioners will increasingly work with families who have these programs.

  • To explore sensory and communication frustration and the role of speech pathology and occupational therapy
  • To increase positive relationships with children through strengths approach and reinforcement of good choices
  • How to respond in difficult situations to de- escalate distress between parents and children/adolescents
