Our Approach to Providing Behaviour Consultancy Services

We use a positive behaviour support approach for our behaviour consultancy services, because this is recommended in national guidance and it is an ethical, safe and effective approach.  Links for all national guidance documents can be found at the bottom of this page.

Key features of a PBS approach

  • Strong values base where punishment and aversive approaches are not used in response to behaviours of concern.
  • Based on our understanding of behavioural science, the overall aim is to look at ways in which we can increase behaviours which replace those that are of concern for the person and those around them.
  • Focus on quality of life improvements for the person and those around them
  • Consultation and co-production is at the heart of the approach, working collaboratively is essential to success.

Specialist Assessment

Key to providing the right interventions and supports is getting a good understanding of why someone might be presenting with a behaviours that is of concern. We gain this understanding through a functional behaviour assessment.

PBS outreach services

A functional behaviour assessment is a process which seeks to gain a thorough understanding of the person, the people around the person and behaviours which occur in the context in which they happen. As a result of this sort of assessment we can develop a bespoke individualised intervention plan and support to implement it.

A detailed functional behaviour assessment should take a minimum of 30 hours to complete and should be an in-depth process which gathers information from a number of different sources.  The assessment should include:

  • Meeting and talking with the person themselves if this is possible
  • Completing a structured interview with people around the person who spend the most time with them
  • Structured questionnaires and observations within the context where the behaviours occur and where the person spends time.
