Positive Behavioural Support Program (PBS)
What is the Positive Behavioural Support Program (PBS)?
A provincially funded in-home support program for families with children with special needs, including children with autism, ages 3 to 19 who present with behavioural challenges.
Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) works in partnership with families. Together we develop individualized assessments, plans and strategies for supporting children. The plans and strategies are then implemented by families in their home. To assist families with their implementation of plans we provide formal and informal training, modeling, and access to current research and information.
Our Objectives Include:
- Reducing the child’s current challenging behaviours
- Provide families with tools to allow them to independently address challenging behaviours that may arise in the future.
- Increase the child’s self-help and independence skills like social skills, emotional competency, and communication skills.
- Provide families with guidance and resources so that they can educate themselves further and focus their existing strengths and skills to support their child.
Positive Behavioural Support - Individualized Funding
