Positive Behaviour Support for Autism
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) emerged as an approach from Applied Behaviour Analysis. It is a behaviour management system that takes a person-centered view and its principles are founded on each child being treated fairly.
The child’s well-being is always the main focus of the assessment and treatment.
The aim of PBS is to understand the Autistic child as a whole – using medical, physical, mental and environmental history to establish the motivations and triggers behind challenging child behaviour.
Positive Behaviour Support promotes the use of therapies for Autistic children based on positive reinforcement – as opposed to punishment.
We support children by encouraging sociable behaviors and reduce problematic behaviours by teaching them healthy functional skills to replace negative behaviors.
We support parents and families with ASD individuals achieve a good quality of life by building a more structured and positive environment for all.
We conduct functional behaviour assessments to create behaviour support plans to manage challenging behaviours in individuals with Autism or Learning Disabilities who may also have mental health conditions.
By using evidence-based positive interventions, we teach children and adults alternative behaviours and communication to enhance their quality of life.
We also provide PBS training and implementation for staff (including education and health care staff) and organisations in London, where we provide high-quality and flexible-needs based models of training and support to help Autistic children and individuals with behaviour management.
