SUPPORT PLANS


Behaviour support plan (BSP) is a comprehensive and individualised document that outlines strategies and supports to address challenging behaviour s in individuals with disability. It is a crucial component of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and aims to promote positive behaviour change while ensuring the safety and well-being of the individual and those around them.

The development of an effective behaviour support plan starts with a thorough assessment of the individual's needs and behaviour patterns. This includes conducting a functional analysis to understand the function or purpose behind the challenging behaviour. It helps identify triggers, antecedents, and consequences that contribute to the behaviour.

Behaviour support plan is designed with a person-centered approach, taking into account the unique strengths, preferences, and goals of the individual. It aims to empower the person with disability, ensuring their active involvement in the planning and decision-making process.

BSP emphasises the use of positive behaviour support strategies that focus on preventing challenging behaviour and promoting desired behaviours. This may include teaching alternative skills, modifying the environment, and providing appropriate supports to meet the individual's needs.

Developing and implementing a behaviour support plan involves a collaborative effort. It requires the involvement of the individual, their families or carers, support workers, and other professionals. Collaboration and communication are essential to ensure the plan meets the specific needs and goals of the individual.

Behaviour support plan is not a static document but a dynamic one. Regular monitoring and review are essential to ensure its effectiveness. This involves collecting data, tracking progress, and evaluating the outcomes of the implemented strategies. Adjustments and modifications can be made based on the individual's response and changing needs.
