Introduction to Positive Behaviour Support - Parent-carer Training Webinar


What this webinar aims to explore...

Positive Behaviour Support, known as PBS, is a tried and tested way of understanding ‘challenging’ behaviour in children and adults with learning disabilities or autism.

It provides strategies based on this understanding, which aim to reduce the likelihood of the behaviour occurring and improve quality of life for the person and those supporting them.

This webinar explains and explores what is meant by PBS and describes a model of understanding behaviours of concern. Participants will explore the meaning of behaviour and consider their own role in developing effective support.
