Understanding Positive Behaviour Support in NDIS

NDIS Improved relationship

What is positive behaviour support in NDIS? 

Positive behaviour support by NDIS is an ideal plan for disabled people suffering from challenging traits that can harm their cognitive and intellectual capabilities. To tackle this, NDIS has come up with certain programmes that can help generate positive behaviour in participants by recognising the trigger point that appears in them. 

The positive behaviour support is pinned under Improved Relationship plan, helping the participants to walk towards a more positive behaviour by eliminating the means of challenges that overall affects the participants thinking capabilities including reasoning and credibility of the person’s behaviour. 

How to get Positive behaviour support in your NDIS plan? 

As mentioned earlier in this blog, families wishing to inculcate positive behaviour in their child, must opt for an Improved Relationship Plan. As the name suggests, the plan helps families and their childrens to develop harmonious relationships, increasing positive social skills and eliminating a hindrance that triggers harmful behaviour.

Under Improved Relationship plan, the participants can avail Specialist Behavioural Intervention Support and Behaviour Management Plan together with Training In Behaviour Management Strategies. 

Families can include Improved Relationship in their NDIS plan if :

  • The participants needs support to regulate their behaviour
  • The participants wants to regulate their emotions in order to increase social and communication skills 
  • The participants needs to regulate their emotions to learn to express and implement on their own 
  • The participants needs support in building self-confidence while interacting with others

Is Restrictive Practice part of NDIS Improved Relationship Plan? 

The goal of Improved Relationship Plan is to eliminate any sort of restrictions that can hinder the participants growth and behavioural development. 

However, regulated restrictive practice is used as a last resort as necessary means to safeguard the patient from indulging in self harm, aggressive behaviour or harming other people. 

Regulated Restrictive Practice is classified into five categories, those are the : 

  • Physical restraint – Manual method of controlling force or movement of the patient 
  • Mechanical restraint – Using special devices to restrict movement 
  • Chemical Restraint – Use of chemical substance and medications to influence patients behaviour 
  • Environmental restraint – restricting the patient from entering certain areas 
  • Seclusion – The patient will be kept in a solitary room where they cannot choose to voluntarily move from one place to another.

It should be highly noted that all forms of Regulated Restrictive Practice must be monitored and reported monthly on the NDIS commission portal.
