Self-assessment Resource Guide for the Positive Behaviour Support Capability Framework

This Self-assessment Resource Guide complements the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Capability Framework. Its broad purpose is to provide guidance to behaviour support practitioners (whether they are registered providers, or employed or otherwise engaged by registered providers) on how to assess their own capabilities against the PBS Capability Framework.

The Guide aims to:

  • build capability in the development of behaviour support
  • encourage progressively higher standards in behaviour support services provided to people with disability.

The Guide also provides a toolkit of resources that behaviour support practitioners can use to:

  • self-assess their capabilities against the PBS Capability Framework
  • develop a Portfolio of Evidence that may be used when applying to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commissioner for a determination of their suitability to undertake activities that, under the NDIS Act, can only be undertaken by an NDIS behaviour support practitioner.

The NDIS Commission will contact behaviour support practitioners when they are required to undertake this process.
