What is Positive Behavioural Support

At Sea Change, our Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) services are designed to address challenging behaviours, enhancing the self-esteem, confidence, and self-efficacy of participants. Our goal is to empower individuals to achieve their personal and life goals, improve their relationships, reduce negative behaviours, and enhance overall quality of life.

Collaborative Assessment: Involving participants, family members, and support networks to understand the behaviours of concern.

Tailored Support Plans: Development of a Positive Behavioural Support Plan with strategies to address specific needs.

Expertise Across Ages and Disabilities: Extensive experience with paediatric, adult, and aged care participants, across all types of disabilities and behaviour presentations.

Multidisciplinary Team: Our bilingual and experienced practitioners offer support for complex cases, including forensic, severe mental illness, and children in care.

Services Offered

Positive Behavioural Support Assessment and Plan: Identifying behaviours of concern and developing a tailored plan with strategies for improvement.

Comprehensive PBS Services: Including assessment, plan development, and ongoing intervention with stakeholder and family training for capacity building.

Funding and Access

Funding Options: Services may be funded through NDIS, Early Childhood Intervention, private payments, NSW schools funding, and Lifetime Care (iCare).

Service Delivery: Available in-person or via Telehealth across Australia.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible for NDIS funding?

Services like Improved Relationships under NDIS may cover PBS. Visit the National Disability Insurance Scheme website for details.

How does PBS differ from Psychology?

PBS focuses on enhancing quality of life and managing behaviours through environmental and support-based strategies, while psychology primarily addresses mental health treatments.

Can PBS work with existing supports?

Yes, our practitioners collaborate with existing supports, ensuring integrated care across environments like home, school, and community.

What is a restrictive practice?

It’s a measure that restricts the rights or freedom of movement of a person with a disability, used only to prevent harm, and must be outlined in a Behaviour Support Plan.

What training does PBS include?

Training on the Behaviour Support Plan is provided for family members, support staff, and allied health professionals to ensure effective implementation.

Fantastic experience with Sea Change. Friendly, knowledgeable, and punctual. They provided exceptional care, with the convenience of their mobile service being a major plus. Highly recommended!

I had a really complex case for a home care client and the team at Sea Change were amazing. I got quick service, an amazing occupational therapist and great follow-up. I love it when a company does what they say they are going to do and that is hard to find these days.
