Positive Strategies Behaviour Course
A three-week family action course for parents or carers of a child whom they believe may have ASD or ADHD, or who is on the waiting list for assessment of ADHD or ASD.
Developed by Stephanie Summers and Melanie Bruce from Norfolk Community Health & Care, the Positive Strategies Behaviour (PBS) course looks at the child’s behaviour as communication.
Families are given the opportunity to discuss their own situations, as well as meeting other people in similar circumstances. The aim is to help identify possible internal and external triggers for behaviour, and then consider strategies to support the child to manage this. By the end of the three weeks, parents will have completed a PBS plan built upon the child’s individual needs. This can be used to support the child’s behaviour at school, with family and in other settings.
