Behaviour support tools

I’ll happily go on the record to say that I think behaviour support is a valuable tool in your parenting toolbox. Whether it’s a physical product or strategic plan, behaviour support can go a long way toward getting you and your family safely out of the house and enjoying your community. The NDIS funds a bunch (yep, that’s a technical term) of behaviour support tools depending on your child’s needs and goals.

Let’s delve a little deeper shall we;

1. Strategy Crafting: One of the standout perks of behaviour support is the strategic planning it provides. With the help of professionals, families can craft strategies tailor-made to their child's behaviours. It's like having a GPS system to navigate those unpredictable behaviour routes.

2. Skill Building Kits: There are some fantastic kits out there that promote positive behaviour while teaching new skills. It’s a bit like playing a game; you learn as you go, and it can be a lot of fun!

3. Tech Aids: From apps that help with emotion recognition to those that offer reward systems for positive behaviours, technology has really stepped up. And the best bit? The NDIS is on board with funding some of these.

4. Environmental Adjustments: Sometimes, just a tweak in the environment can make a world of difference. It might be a sensory space or calming corner. Whatever it is, it’s all about creating a space that offers comfort during those challenging moments.

5. Training for Families: It's not just about the individual. The NDIS also funds training for families. Imagine having a cheat sheet, a bit of inside info to help understand and address behaviours. That's what this training can feel like.

6. Professional Support: Having an expert by your side, like a behaviour therapist, can be immensely reassuring. They're there to guide, support, and offer insights based on years of experience. And yep, the NDIS has got this covered too!

7. Peer Interaction Activities: Group sessions where kids can interact with their peers are brilliant. Not only do they learn from one another, but they also get to make new mates in the process.

When you take a step back and look at the bigger picture, it's clear that behaviour support tools are more than just tools; they're game-changers. They have the power to transform daily routines, turning challenges into opportunities for growth. With the NDIS backing so many of these tools, the path forward looks promising.

While I've put my heart into aligning these tips with your NDIS path, the road can have its twists. Remember, these are just suggestions. Dive in, explore, and find what truly works for you. Sending you all my best vibes!

You're the best judge of whether this service fits your child's goals or not.
