What is Behaviour Support?
CatholicCare Behaviour Support Services work collaboratively with families and support teams to understand the underlying reasons for challenging behaviours. We then develop individualised behavior support plans that focus on reducing the challenging behaviours while also teaching the person skills to better manage their behaviour. Our overarching goal is to provide quality service based on ethical and sound clinical practice principles and improve the quality of life for individuals and families.
Who do we Support?
We support children, young people and adults with disabilities, who experience issues related to their thinking, feelings and behaviour. This includes people with intellectual disability, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), mental health issues, and people with acquired brain injuries.
Who are our Behaviour Support Team?
Our registered Behaviour Support Practitioners work collaboratively with participants, families and to ultimately enhance the opportunity for every individual to achieve quality of life. Our team are particularly focused on building a strong professional relationship with each participant and supporting them to learn, grow and achieve their life goals.
As a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)-approved provider, CatholicCare’s Behaviour Support services are available as part of an individual’s NDIS Plan or on a fee-for-service basis. The NDIS categories relating to Behaviour Support are Improved Relationships and Improved Daily Living.
