Behaviour support is one of the critical aspects of programs by NDIS practitioners and service providers. It aims to create individualised strategies for every person with disability and making sure these are responsive to the individual’s needs in such a way that it eliminates or at least reduces the need to use regulated restrictive practices. The right behaviour management plan from NDIS is based on person-centred supports and evidence-based strategies to address the needs of people with disability and the causes of behaviours of concern. At the same time, it should protect the quality of life and dignity of the person who requires the support.

Implementing providers (providers using regulated restrictive practices) and specialist behaviour support providers should meet the requirements in the 2018 National Disability Insurance Scheme (Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support) Rules. With the right cloud-based case management solution, they can easily oversee every behaviour support plan compliant to NDIS standards for every individual they are supporting.

If you are a provider, you need to stay up-to-date with the latest restrictive practices and behaviour support arrangements from the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Commission. The Commission progressively operates across Australia, so transitional provisions enable more time for providers to meet the latest requirements.

Senior practitioners with a behaviour management plant from NDIS oversee the practitioners of behaviour support and implement providers who use restrictive practices and behaviour support strategies. They are also responsible for following up on reportable incidents, review and receive provider reports, and provide the best-practice advice to carers, practitioners, participants, families, and providers.

To support your provision of an effective behaviour support plan that meets NDIS requirements, you need a reliable case management solution that can reduce your time administering. That way, you can spend more time assessing your client’s needs and cases. Consider a cloud-based platform that lets you store and access files and work securely, with a business-friendly licensing model and features that are scalable to your organisation’s needs.
