Specialist Positive Behaviour Support
Next Step Professional Therapy offers positive behaviour support on the Sunshine Coast & Noosa. Our approach involves working with the participant and stakeholders to create reliable behaviour support plans. We use evidence-based strategies that are tailored to your unique needs. We also provide specialised positive behaviour support training to all stakeholders. This helps ensure a cohesive support network.
Our NDIS specialist positive behaviour support is designed to reduce harm caused by behaviours of concern. Complex problem behaviours can cause physical and emotional harm. This can result in limiting a person’s ability to engage with their community.
We provide home-based positive behaviour support, which has many benefits. It allows participants to feel more comfortable and at ease in their own environment, making it easier for them to share their thoughts and feelings. The relaxed atmosphere also encourages open discussion of issues. Home-based support also allows participants and carers to practice new skills in their familiar surroundings, helping them to integrate and apply these skills in their daily lives. Finally, home-based support offers more flexibility and convenience for clients to fit sessions into their schedules.
Successful Positive Behaviour Support
A successful positive behaviour support plan benefits individuals with challenging behaviours in several ways. Plans can improve their quality of life by increasing engagement in meaningful activities and reducing challenging behaviours. Plans can also enhance self-esteem by building confidence and promoting mental health. Additionally, plans can promote greater independence by developing social, communication, and functional skills. They can reduce the need for restrictive interventions such as seclusion or restraint and improve relationships with caregivers and family members. Overall, a well designed and executed positive behaviour support plan can have a significant positive impact on an individual’s life, increasing their well-being, independence, and quality of life.
