PBSS is an award winning service with an excellent National reputation for delivering high quality Positive Behaviour Support to individuals within their local community. The service is accessed by children and adults who have a learning disability and/or Autism whom engage in behaviour that challenges services. The service is staffed by Board Certified Behaviour Analysts, Assistant Behaviour Analysts and Behaviour Practitioners and was the first of its kind in the UK to be developed within the context of a Local Authority.
The service works across 4 core domains;
Technical Support: full functional assessment, development of a person centred intervention plan, supported intervention and exit and maintenance criteria.
Crisis prevention: skilling up of mainstream services through training opportunities.
Early Intervention: behaviour analytic support within education settings.
Placement development: supporting people to move out of hospital or back to their local areas from out of borough placements.
PBSS has a team of dedicated assistant behaviour analysts and behaviour practitioners who support the behaviour analysts to complete assessments and deliver intervention. There is an emphasis on team work.
The Practice Manager is a dual role that is both clinical and managerial. You will hold a small clinical caseload fulfilling the technical support domain of the service.
