Positive Behavioural Support and Autism

Positive behavioural support is a process in which individuals are assisted in acquiring adaptive, socially meaningful behaviours and encouraged to overcome maladaptive behaviours.

The aim of positive behavioural supports is to teach functional skills as a replacement for problem behaviour.

Positive behavioural support plans typically involve changing existing environments in a manner that makes problem behaviours irrelevant, ineffective and inefficient.
