Positive Behaviour Support

Our Positive Behavior Support services empower individuals with disabilities to thrive through personalised strategies and compassionate guidance.


Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Services Across Western Australia

Positive Behaviour Support (often known as PBS), is a compassionate approach to addressing challenging behaviours. PBS uses scientific principles to enhance individuals' quality of life by fostering positive changes.


Instead of merely managing difficulties, PBS strives to elevate and enrich the lives of those it supports.

We offer PBS services to NDIS Participants across Perth, Mandurah. Rockingham, Bunbury, Busselton, and other areas upon request via Telehealth. 

Positive Behaviour Support values, theories and processes

Positive Behaviour Support values aim to:

  • Enhance a person’s quality of life

  • Work in conjunction with family and other members of the person’s team (including allied health professionals and support workers) to support skill development

The theories behind PBS:

PBS aims to increase capacity so that the person does not need to use behaviour to tell us something is not right for them.  

All behaviour has a function.

 Our goal within PBS process is to understand the purpose of the challenging behaviour. 

PBS uses behaviour assessments and analysis to describe and determine the function of a behaviour. 

Taking into consideration the function of the behaviour, a PBS practitioner will suggest strategies that relate to environmental change, systems change and skill building.

The Positive Behaviour Support Process

At Enable WA, our PBS Practitioners use direct and indirect assessment methods to guide our understanding of the function of challenging behaviour.

The process behind Positive Behaviour Support

  • We utilise a PBS Planning Framework to identify and recommend strategies for meeting the person’s (or your) needs in partnership with key people within the person’s/your life.

  • We can provide training on implementation of strategies recommended in the Plan for key people in the person’s/your life.

  • PBS is a proactive process that can take time to develop affective and sustainable outcomes.

Restrictive Practices

Restrictive Practices are defined by NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Commission as:


"any practice or intervention that has the effect of restricting the rights or freedom of movement of a person with disability."

Under the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Commission, registered providers who develop behaviour support plans or use restrictive practices (implementing providers), are required to comply with the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework, which is underpinned by the same high-level guiding principles (including recognition and respect of human rights), and a person-centred approach as the national framework.

As a PBS provider we can assist in identifying if any restrictive practice is in place, reducing the need of the restrictive practice by implementing the PBS process. We can then regulate the restrictive practices in accordance to the NDIS Commission.
