Disability Behaviour Support


Behaviour support is an evidence based approach used to support people with disabilities who have challenges regulating their thinking, feeling and behaviour. Behaviour support involves working with the individual, their family and staff to identify behaviours of concern, or that cause harm to participant or others and to design and undertake specific positive behaviour support strategies.

What behaviour support does Samaritans offer?
