Positive behaviour intervention and support: understanding the importance

Children of all ages can exhibit different behavioural challenges, which may be related to a range of disorders. If left untreated, these disorders can bring more serious issues which affect daily functioning.

In order to best address these, we offer a professional positive behaviour support service that will equip you with the best strategies to help children learn positive ways of managing their emotions and behaving. Our evidence-based, data-driven strategies will help with children’s behaviour, helping you to approach intervention in a more informed way.

Support children with emotional and behavioural difficulties

Regardless of the type of emotional and behavioural difficulties children may be experiencing, functional analysis can be a useful tool to assess the reasons for the behaviour occurring and to inform successful intervention.

Examples of emotional and behavioural difficulties include physical aggression, property destruction, verbal aggression, withdrawal and self-injurious behaviour.  Our positive behaviour support service will provide you with the best resources for children of all ages and is suitable for parents, carers, educators, youth, health and disability professionals.

Informed positive behaviour intervention support can assist the individuals with emotional and behavioural difficulties. By providing positive behaviour management, you will be equipped with the tools to address the challenges faced by children with behavioural difficulties.

Behaviour intervention for reducing challenging behaviour

Our positive behaviour intervention strategies and available materials will guide and support you through a structured intervention plan. Positive behaviour support methods are evidence driven in order to promote effectiveness of positive behaviour management for reducing behaviour that challenges.

There are many interventions which purport to reduce behaviour which challenges, however inconsistent or non-evidence-based approaches can worsen behaviour. By ensuring the intervention focus is on evidence-based practice, specific behaviour that challenges can be effectively reduced.

Work on prevention, not punishment!

Parents, educators, and professionals who work with children have a unique role in their life. Their approach to addressing the underlying needs of can shape children’s development positively.

Our approach aims to provide you with all the necessary skills and strategies to help children of all ages learn positive ways of behaving and managing emotions, focusing on prevention of the behaviours occurring and reducing the need for reactive strategies.

You can help children, only if you know how to help them!

We all want children to achieve their full potential.  Supporting them with their behaviour will give them the skills to achieve this. Positive behaviour support intervention is child-centred and individualised in order to provide highly targeted support to reduce behaviour that challenges and increase independent skills such as emotional regulation.

Here, at Behaviour Help, we offer a wide range of training, behaviour books, online courses, webinars, workshops, SEL educational videos, pbis apps, and more. Support is provided to you to implement positive behaviour intervention which is specific to individual needs. Enjoy the best benefits with the registered NDIS provider.

Welcome to Behaviour Help

Hi there, I’m Dolly Bhargava,

I have been helping people with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD) for more than 21 years. Based on the practical wisdom I have gathered from working with individuals with EBD, their families and professionals in a variety of settings I created this website and all of the resources you can access here.

I hope these resources educate, empower and enable you to support the children you care for so we can help them reach their full potential.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, youth worker or health-care professional, Behaviour Help has resources that can help you.

I completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Speech Pathology from the University of Sydney and a Master of Special Education from the University of Newcastle.

Behaviour Help is a NDIS Registered Provider for Behaviour Support and Therapeutic Support (Speech Pathology Services).
