I for Impulsivity: Positive Behaviour Support

As part of normal development, most children occasionally act, say something, or do something without thinking.

Impulsive behaviours are cause for concern depending on  the following:

  •  the frequency (i.e. how often a child exhibits impulsive behaviour) is considered excessive,
  • the duration (i.e. how long each incident of the impulsive behaviour lasts)  is considered excessive,
  • the intensity (i.e. the strength of the impulsive behaviour) escalates from minor behaviours into extreme behaviours, and
  • the impulsive behaviour negatively impacts the child’s participation in activities, interaction with others, their day-to-day functioning and development.

Based on the evidence-based Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) approach, this user-friendly guide, I for Impulsivity, will help you develop a comprehensive PBS plan step-by-step. You will learn how to do the following:

  1. Determine the reasons for the impulsive behaviour (assess),
  2. Respond appropriately when the impulsive behaviour occurs (manage), and
  3. Help the child learn positive ways of behaving and managing their emotions (prevent).

Use the practical tools (checklists, forms, and strategies) provided to develop comprehensive PBS plans that can be used to support children of all ages consistently in all contexts. This invaluable resource is useful for parents, caregivers, childcare educators, primary and secondary educators, supervisory, allied health professionals, and mental health professionals.
