PublishingPageContent

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) uses preventative, teaching and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful and durable behaviour outco​mes.

PBS is an evidence-based approach for supporting all students, such as through the department's School-wide positive behaviour support program, as well as for individual students.

PBS support for individual students:

  • concentrates primarily on preventing the occurrence of an identified behaviour by avoiding or adapting the circumstances that usually trigger this behaviour
  • focuses on building skills to use or developing alternative preferred behaviours
  • considers the motivation for or functions of behaviours
  • values the student and their attempts at positive interaction
  • uses the students strengths and interests to increase success
  • increases an individuals quality of life by supporting increased access and engagement.
