Do you, or the person you support, have behaviours of concern?

If you, or the person you support, has a disability and complex behaviours of concern, we’re here to help.

These behaviours can express themselves in a range of forms including verbal aggression; being physically violent or hostile; experiencing high levels of anxiety; or behaving in ways that are socially isolating or inappropriate.

If the situation creates a strain on your relationships, or has the potential to cause harm, it’s time to ask for help.

Understanding challenging behaviours

Behaviour support is an evidence-based approach to supporting people with disability who sometimes display challenging behaviours. It looks to improve the person’s quality of life by understanding why they engage in the behaviour. This understanding helps address unmet needs and to build skills to reduce challenging behaviours.
