What is Positive Behavioural Support?

If you've never heard of PBS before, this is the place to start. This resource will help you understand what PBS is and offers links to other sources of information to develop your knowledge. 


What should Positive Behavioural Support look like?

This resource will help you learn more about PBS and what you might see in a PBS service/school. You might be about to visit a service or school that you are considering using for your relative. You could be thinking about the service/school that currently provides support. Or you might be preparing for a home visit from a professional and you want to check that he or she has a good understanding of Positive Behavioural Support. The resource will tell you what people should be doing to support your relative and things you can ask to have a look at. For example, a behaviour support plan.    


Questions to check that Positive Behavioural Support is being used well

This will provide you with some questions to ask of a professional or service about the quality of PBS being offered. This might be helpful if you are choosing a provider or as a way of preparing for an assessment of your relatives’ needs.
