Abstract

The purpose of this research project was to explore the conditions that support and/or impede the service level implementation of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) in Western Australian disability sector organisations (DSOs).

This research has found that DSOs are achieving good results in implementing PBS at the individual level where the person-centred focus of PBS is most clearly seen in such activities as developing personal plans and supporting individuals who display challenging behaviours. However, the targeted and universal levels of PBS implementation have not received as much attention and the beneficial outcomes these more systemic applications aim for are not likely to emerge without that investment. The whole-of-system organisational application of PBS will be an important and ongoing task for DSOs into the future and further evaluations would be needed to examine how DSOs perform in this regard.
