Improved Relationships

VDAKK specializes in providing support to adults with disability who present with behavior of concern and are seeking to improve their relationships. By taking a human rights focus and building on an evidence-based approach, Positive Behavior Support (PBS) focuses on increasing a person’s quality of life and decreasing the frequency and severity of their behavior of concern

This category is the provision of specialised assessment where the participant may have complex or unclear needs, requiring long term and/or intensive supports to address behaviours of concern.

Behaviour Support

Behaviour support requires a behaviour support plan to be developed that aims to limit the likelihood of behaviours of concern developing or increasing once identified. This plan outlines the specifically designed positive behavioural support strategies for a participant, their family and support persons that will achieve the intended outcome of eliminating or reducing behaviours of concern. This support category includes specialist behavioural intervention support, which is an intensive support for a participant, intending to address significantly harmful or persistent behaviours of concern.

Specialist Behavioural Intervention Support
