A new website is being launched on Wednesday 14 February for behaviour support practitioners and service providers who want to implement better quality behaviour support plans.   

We invite behaviour support practitioners, quality managers, clinical managers, and team leaders to register for the webinar launching the new website. The website includes tools and resources for behaviour support practitioners to improve their capacity to develop and implement better quality behaviour support plans. 

Flinders University and the University of Queensland have collaborated with the University of Melbourne to develop evidence-based resources that cover: 

  • Fundamentals of Positive Behaviour Support  
  • Formulation and functional behaviour assessment  
  • Using data for decision-making 
  • Values-based goal setting 
  • Proactive and reactive strategies 

In this webinar, we will hear from Professor Keith McVilly, University of Melbourne, Dr Alinka Fisher, Flinders University and Professor Karen Nankervis, University of Queensland. 

Join the webinar to learn about the development of the website and how the resources can be used to implement better quality behaviour support plans.  

There will also be an opportunity for questions.
