Positive Behaviour

It was especially ineffective in children or people with disabilities as often their behaviour was not a choice and how can one adjust a behaviour when it was not clear why a punishment was being given.

However they are far less effective ways of managing behaviour, and more tiring for all parties involved, than positive behavioural support. Positive behaviour is important for the growth and wellbeing of any person as it builds self-esteem and a sense of individualism verses the old ways which lead to fear, self-loathing, poor social skills and often endorses worse or continued bad behaviour.

Positive behaviour is a modern approach to managing behavioural issues. Positive behaviour comprises of strategies, methods and ideology of the internationally accepted approach to reduce or manage challenging behaviour.

This lifts the quality of life for the person with a disability and improve the situation for parents, carer’s clinicians and teachers. Techniques such as teaching a person a new skill or giving a person a coping strategy for things that affect them such as noise or light and even adjusting an environment to meet that persons requirements, will ensure more effective results for activities required.
