Support person interacting with individual in chair

COVID-19 has undoubtedly brought many changes in the way that we all live our daily lives. For some people with cognitive disabilities and behaviour support needs managing the impact of changes in regular routines, restrictions in being able to undertake familiar activities and more time at home has been challenging. NDS was joined by a panel of experienced behaviour support practitioners, who are also DCJ (FACS) independent specialists, for an interactive question and answer session that helped to explore these issues.

NDS would like to acknowledge the support of DCJ (FACS) and in particular Jacqui Astolfi and the Performance Improvement & Central Restrictive Practices Team in developing this webinar and engaging our panel.
