Behaviour Support

Behaviour Support

Are you having difficulty with challenging behaviours?

We all behave in ways that, at times, don’t really help us in the long run – or even the short run.

Some of us, though, have more difficulty with our behaviours than others. This may be you, or someone you live with. We behave in ways that are not just unhelpful – they put us or others at risk of harm, or even exclusion from the community.

Physical violence. Self-harm. Stealing. Constant lying. Breaking stuff. Angry outbursts and meltdowns. Verbal abuse. Intimidation. Substance abuse. The list goes on.

Worst of all, we often don’t really know why we do these things. You know you get angry. You know you get upset. You know the things you do seem to work for you in the moment, but not for others – and that, in the long run, they don’t work for you either.

Well, our team of Behaviour Support Practitioners are here to help.

What is Behaviour Support?

A Behaviour Support Practitioner is an appropriately skilled and qualified professional assessed against the Positive Behaviour Support Capability Framework, and may come a range of disciplines including Social Work, Psychology, Counselling, and other recognised professional disciplines. All our all Behaviour Support Practitioners are registered with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission to provide Specialist Behaviour Support.

AYS focuses on person-centred interventions to address the underlying causes of behaviours of concern or challenging behaviours, while safeguarding the dignity and quality of life of people with disability who require specialist behaviour support.
