Writing Positive Behaviour Support Plans: A Practical Workshop for PBS Practitioners (ADL)

July 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


This training provides practitioners with the opportunity to learn how to present person-centred PBS plans, ensuring that information is comprehensive, professional and respectful, and accessible to key stakeholders. We will look at some existing plan templates and clinical models, and consider their advantages and disadvantages. We will consider the ‘fit’ between recommended strategies and support plan construction, in efforts to promote best possible outcomes for the individual being supported.

It will include interactive dialogue with both presenters, examples of NDIS support plan templates, examples of clinical plans, and active learning tasks.

Assumed background knowledge and experience of attendees

It is expected that those attending this training have a comprehensive background in PBS (including relevant qualifications or multi-day training in behaviour support intervention), including the assessment process and the implementation of evidence-based practices.
