Positive Behaviour Support NDIS in Melbourne
A nurturing environment helps young individuals with complex needs to develop essential life skills, build resilience, and create a path towards personal achievement. Through behaviour support services, one can create a lasting change in the lives of participants by being a reliable companion. At Auslife Care, we offer NDIS Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) as an integral part of our comprehensive care approach to our clients in Melbourne.
We are dedicated to being a guiding force in supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live life with dignity. Our team firmly believes that everyone deserves to be understood and given the opportunity to achieve their goals, irrespective of their challenges. Through our PBS services, we aim to build meaningful connections and help our participants to lead fulfilling lives.
What is Positive Behaviour Support NDIS?
The NDIS behaviour support employs evidence-backed methods to help individuals who exhibit challenging behaviours. This approach is intended to facilitate positive behavioural changes by addressing the underlying causes of these behaviours, rather than relying solely on corrective measures. The goal is to enhance the individual’s quality of life by teaching them new skills, improving communication, and fostering a supportive environment. PBS aims to promote adaptive behaviours by aligning with the principles of dignity, respect, and person-centred care.
How to Get NDIS Funding for Positive Behaviour Support?
Behaviour Support can be funded through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as a part of Improved Relationships, a sub-category under Capacity Building. Depending on your NDIS plan, we may offer behaviour support services even if you are funded under the Improved Daily Living category. Our services are available regardless of NDIS funding, but please note that Medicare rebates do not apply. If necessary, you can request a fee-for-service quote.
To secure NDIS funding for PBS, start by confirming your eligibility and undergoing an assessment. If PBS is identified as needed, include it in your NDIS plan. Develop a behaviour support plan with a specialist, submit it for approval, and once approved, choose a registered provider like us to implement the plan. Also, keep in mind that regular reviews ensure effectiveness.

Behaviour Support focuses on understanding and addressing challenging behaviours through positive strategies. It is more proactive and aims to teach individuals new skills to replace challenging behaviours. In contrast, therapy may address broader mental health or developmental concerns.
A Behaviour Support Practitioner is a professional with expertise in Positive Behaviour Support who works with individuals and their support networks. They help participants develop and implement behaviour support plans.
From Behavior Support, you can expect a personalised plan that addresses challenging behaviours, training on how to implement strategies, ongoing monitoring, and support to achieve positive behaviour change.
The number of hours and funding required for a Behavior Support plan varies based on the individual’s needs and goals. This is determined during the NDIS planning process and can be adjusted if necessary through plan reviews.
