Resources and help

Assessment tools

Tools for a basic Functional Behavioural Assessment are provided below. These tools will assist you in gathering and analysing data and developing hypotheses. These hypotheses will then inform the design of interventions.

The Writing Positive Behaviour Support Plans (WPBSP) training program delivered by the Centre of Excellence for Clinical Innovation and Behaviour Support will support you to use these tools and also provide a comprehensive understanding of the functions of behaviour, analysis of data and development of interventions. Use of these tools without completing the WPBSP training program is not recommended.

Practice statements

These practice statements provide information and advice on significant issues in positive practice.
