Managing Challenging Behaviours
Positive Behaviour Support
People living with a disability must be viewed as individuals who have their own specific needs, interests, and strengths. Most people and children at some point in their life will engage in behaviours that challenge. This can make everyday activities like getting ready for school, going to the shops, or getting ready for bed a stressful and upsetting experience for both you and your child.
The role of the Behaviour Support Practitioner will be to work closely with you, your children and other important people in your life to understand the reason for the behaviour occurring.
Getting support from an experienced and qualified person who understands these behaviours in a supportive environment is a good way for both you and your child to learn new strategies and skills.
Everyday Independence therapists are qualified and experienced in supporting children and their families to better manage and overcome challenging behaviours.

How Everyday Independence Behaviour Support Practitioners can help
Your child’s Everyday Independence Behaviour Support Practitioner:
- Works with you to create a vision for a life with positive interactions, activities and experiences.
- Works in partnership with you and the important people in your child’s life.
We do this by building an understanding of your child and the things that will create an enabling environment for them. This way we can support you and your child to enhance their quality of life and reduce behaviours that challenge.
Positive Behaviour Support Plan:
Our therapist will develop a Positive Behaviour Support Plan for your child. Their Positive Behaviour Support plan is developed by their Behaviour Support Practitioner with input from you and the trusted people in your life.
It includes strategies to keep your child and everyone safe. It is important that this plan is shared with the people who support your child and it is reviewed and updated regularly.
We work with you and your supports
We know that the best support occurs when people understand your child’s needs and their Positive Behaviour Support Plan assists in this. We connect and work alongside all the people who support your child and encourage them to assist your child to build their skills in communication, making choices and spending time doing what they enjoy. This includes working closely with their other therapists.
