For people living with a disability and their parents/carers, navigating behaviours and emotions can be especially complex. Where such circumstances are identified the NDIS can provide support, which usually begins with a detailed Behaviour Assessment performed by a suitably qualified and experienced Psychologist. The Behaviour Assessment marks the beginning of this therapeutic process and may take several sessions to complete. At the end, a clearer picture tends to emerge as to the complexity of the behaviour and suggestions for ongoing support. Behavioural Support is the process of working with a participant (and sometimes their parents/carers) to steer and reinforce positive coping skills and responses.
