PBS Session 1

Positive Behaviour Strategies (PBS) is a programme for families of children with additional needs produced by our partners in Norfolk Community Health and Care and Family Action. It was developed originally to give group support to families of children who had been referred for assessment by a specialist team.

There are lots of videos, links and activities to support families. During the session you can pause at any time to take part in an activity below.

This session will cover;

  • An introduction to the programme.
  • How to understand the needs of your child and how this is communicated to you by their behaviour.
  • How to think about what causes your child distress rather than your child having ‘challenging behaviour’.
