A Positive Behaviour Support Plan is a CARE PLAN.
A Positive Behaviour Support Plan is created to help understand and support children, young people and adults who have a Learning Disability and display behaviour that others find challenging.
A Positive Behaviour Support Plan is an individualised CARE PLAN which is available to those who provide care and support.
A Positive Behaviour Support Plan should be informed by functional assessments. People and their families should be as fully involved as possible in developing and reviewing the plan.
A Positive Behaviour Support Plan should include the following elements:
- proactive strategies designed to improve quality of life and remove conditions that promote behaviour that challenges
- identification of environmental adaptations and strategies to support the development of new skills
- preventative (calming) strategies in response to early signs of distress
- reactive strategies to manage behaviours that are not preventable.
For further information on Positive Behaviour Support Plans and the wider positive behaviour framework, see the PBS Academy website.
