Congratulations to Bridie Telford, Everyday Independence Positive Behaviour Support Lead, who has accepted an invitation from Occupational Therapy Australia to join the Enabling Behaviour Support Practitioners Advisory Group.

Bridie will form part of a national project team commissioned by the NDIS Quality Safeguards Commission to improve the quality and effectiveness of behaviour support services.

Over the next two years, the project aims to develop the resources needed to improve practice in the development and implementation of Behaviour Support Plans.  This includes working toward establishing a practice environment in which people with disabilities are supported in safe and dignified ways that promote their health, wellbeing and quality of life.

Bridie has a wealth of knowledge in the area of Behaviour Support and will provide strategic advice throughout the project. She will also assist with launch planning and dissemination of the final products.

We know that Bridie will be a huge asset to this project. Her inclusion in this advisory group is a testament to her unwavering commitment to changing the game for people living with a disability.

In her role as Positive Behaviour Support Lead, Bridie has developed a team of PBS Practitioners who deliver tailored support to children and adults who use challenging behaviours to live a better quality of life, with fewer restrictions.
