At Possability we have specialist teams to help people with complex and exceptional needs that exceed the scope of other disability programs.
As well as providing direct support, Possability can provide a comprehensive functional assessment and develop a highly specialised Support Plan for your family member.
In conjunction with medication therapy, our specialists use a holistic approach to ensure that people receiving support are engaged in Positive Behaviour Support practices that complement their treatment. This approach has been highly successful for many clients, since quality of life often improves when behavioural issues are managed well.
Our highly skilled staff have experience in successfully supporting individuals with complex behaviours to learn and engage with others in a safe environment. We work closely with individuals and their family to provide supports that meet their specific needs, using a Positive Behaviour Support framework.
How do I access Specialist Support Services?
NDIS participants with complex supports in their Participant Plan and their family or carers can contact Possability to discuss options.
Is the environment restrictive?
The Intensive Support Service operates under the Disability Services Act 2011, which requires the use of the least restrictive and intrusive practice possible. This model is based on positive behavioural support, which aims to reduce restrictive interventions in support practices.
What is Positive Behaviour Support?
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence based approach to supporting people with intellectual disabilities who use challenging behaviour. PBS shifts the focus from simply trying to eliminate challenging behaviour, to understanding why a person needs to engage in challenging behaviour, and then addressing that need.
Our highly skilled team has studies published in this area, more information can be found here http://www.poschange.net/publications/
