BRISBANE - Developing a Positive Behaviour Support Plan (2-day course - 10 October & 28 November)

Autism Hub, 141 Merton Rd, WOOLLOONGABBA - 08:30 - 15:30


Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a structured, preventative and evidence based approach to addressing complex and challenging behaviours. This two-day course will guide participants through the steps necessary for developing a Functional Behaviour Assessment (FBA) - the key component of an individual behaviour support plan.

An FBA is also useful process for team members supporting individuals who require a more thorough consideration of a specific focus behaviour. An FBA may be useful when the focus behaviour is persistent, dangerous, highly disruptive and/or a frequent barrier to learning and engagement with others.

This course will utilise course participants’ case studies to examine the processes of an FBA including:

  • Assembling, skilling and supporting team members
  • Gathering detailed information about the individual
  • Prioritising and choosing a focus behaviour (goal setting)
  • Gathering information about the behaviour of concern and choosing appropriate tools to determine the baseline and possible function of the behaviour.
  • Developing and testing a hypothesis or reason for the behaviour
  • Writing and implementing with fidelity an individual behaviour support plan
  • Reviewing the individual behaviour support plan
  • Templates and tools will be provided to help you develop your FBA.

The facilitator will utilise current research and evidence as well as professional experience to ensure individual behaviour support plans are valid and practical.

Participants will:

  • Be required to attend both days of the course.
  • Require access to a client or student for practical data collection and the development of an individual behaviour support plan.
  • Determine the function of the behaviour of concern and appropriate replacement of alternative behaviours to teach and reinforce
  • Receive all materials including handouts, tools, templates and links to further information and useful resources.
