The British Institute of Learning Disabilities, The PBS Academy, The Challenging Behaviour Foundation, Health Education England and Skills for Care have developed and agreed on some key messages about PBS. The key messages describe what PBS is, why it is necessary and how it can be successfully delivered.
The overall aim of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is to improve the quality of a person’s life and that of the people around them. This includes children, young people, adults as well as older people.
PBS provides the right support for a person, their family and friends to help people lead a meaningful life and learn new skills without unnecessary restrictions. It is not simply about getting rid of problematic behaviour
With the right support at the right time, the likelihood of behaviour that challenges is reduced.
