Caring for people with permanent and significant disabilities demands responsibility, knowledge and incredible compassion from the carers and consulting practitioners. Disability care can be particularly challenging if the client exhibits difficult behaviours and struggles with mental stress. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides behavioural support for NDIS participants who have been identified as displaying difficult behaviour.
NDIS Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence-based practice that focuses on addressing the root cause of behavioural problems instead of resorting to temporary fixes. PBS is a framework to understand why certain behaviours of concern get the needs of a person met and then find a more appropriate way for that to happen. This includes identifying the triggers, modification of their current environment and educating the primary caregivers on positive behaviour support methods. This support requires to be provided by a qualified behaviour support practitioner approved by the NDIS Commission. This support plan is quite different from therapeutic supports provided by the NDIS as there are strict regulations laid down by the NDIS Commission regarding PBS and the service providers and practitioners providing the support are required to report back to the Commission every month. The NDIS service providers need to be familiar with the rules and regulations regarding regulated restrictive practices before implementing this service as swift action will be taken against NDIS service providersunauthorised practices.
