Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) aims to enhance young people’s quality of life and ensure they lead full, enriched, and productive lives with opportunities and choice.

We can achieve this through developing skills to self-manage behaviour, considering sensory needs, mental wellbeing, and support with relationships.

Within this section, there are five programmes of learning which all help the autistic young people we support with self-management, as well as managing their surroundings. These programmes all contribute to helping young people to live happily in their homes, become more independent and able to access the world of work in future.

These programmes of learning are:  

  • Sensory management
  • Self-management
  • Following instructions

Under each programme of learning there are skills to be learnt. These are selected based on the individual’s level of understanding and what is achievable for them. To support the learning, skill steps are used by the staff team to offer a consistent approach.

For example:

Area of learning: Positive behaviour support

Programme of learning: Following instruction

Learning focus: Using a schedule

I can statement: I can get to a place when directed by an adult and pay attention to the object/photograph/symbol/written word they show me for that place
