Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Training

Have you ever thought, “Why is he/she doing that?” when someone you support is displaying challenging behaviour?

The truth is that the individual you support is trying to communicate something with you. Understanding that behaviour is communication is imperative for anyone that supports individuals with disabilities.  After you understand that, then you can focus on the “why” factor. Only when you start to address this question can you come up with positive solutions for people.  

The online Positive Behaviour Support Training Program is available 24/7 in a convenient online platform. The program aims to meet a variety of learning styles as it is narrated and includes videos that allow the user to follow an individual and understand the analysis of the behaviour.  

The training consists of three modules that focus on understanding behaviour and the function it serves for the individual.  The user will gain understanding in the following areas:

  • Functional analysis process
  • Antecedents, behaviour and consequences
  • Ecological analysis
  • Context of the behaviour
  • Functional hypothesis

Each module ends with a quiz so learning principles can be reviewed before moving on to the next module. 

Who can benefit from this training?

This training program is of benefit to any person or organization providing supports and services to an individual with a disability.

This online program can be used in two different ways:

  • Group Learning (within an organization, a Program Coordinator or other employee with training duties takes the training in advance and then facilitates the discussion for a group of employees)
  • Independent Learning   

This program was developed in consultation with the Ministry of Social Services, and it has been approved by the Ministry as equivalent to its CLSD Level II training!  So, you can now have your employees trained right at home on an as-needed basis!
