What is a behaviour support practitioner? As a behaviour support practitioner they assist adults, young people and children with additional emotional and behavioural needs. They rely on our knowledge of mental health, social development and occupational therapy to improve the well-being of their patients. Specialist behaviour support practitioners typically engage with the client to conduct functional behaviour assessments, and to write and monitor behaviour support plans. The framework of a behaviour support practitioner has four practitioner levels – core, proficient, advanced and specialist. Assessment against the Positive Behaviour Support Capability Framework will form the basis for determining suitability as an NDIS behaviour support practitioner. Angel House Australia specialises in behaviour support practitioner services.
