Service development support

Disability Services previously developed a behaviour support initiative, known as the Positive Behaviour Strategy, to provide support to families and carers, disability sector organisations, and the wider community when supporting a person with disability who may, at times, exhibit challenging behaviours such as being withdrawn, uncooperative or aggressive.

Resources on this strategy are available below.

This strategy has now been implemented by disability sector organisations, families and carers. Disability Services is now focused on helping the sector develop supports and services for people with disability who exhibit challenging behaviours.

For more information about sector service development, contact Vanessa Bird on 9301 3886 or SSDReferrals@dsc.wa.gov.au.
