Yes! We write both functional assessments which look at the cause of behaviour and behaviour support plans which look at how to intervene with behaviour
Liberty hires approximately the top 10% of candidates, requiring that they have these 4 elements:
2. Extremely good interpersonal skills
3. A willingness to undergo Liberty's intensive induction program + attend supervision fortnightly + attend group supervision monthly + develop a compendium of evidence of their skills and knowledge.
4. Live within 45 minutes of participants homes
Our practioners will see the participant/their representatives in their own home or within their everyday setting e.g. at their day program. We offer both telehealth and face to face.
92% of refferals to Liberty Behavioural Servcies comes through word of mouth
8% come through networking/google searches
Behaviour support is tailored to your needs and situation. Improved relationships which is how Behaviour Support is funded, is the most highly regulated part of the NDIS with requirement lists 100 pages long on the legislation, skills and knowledge that we must be deploying.
Therefore there are some things we need to do by law (e.g. focus on restrictive practice reduction and submit certain documents to the goverment within certain time frames) and there are some things that are completely flexible and adaptable to your situation.
Generally behaviour support follows this process:
Our average wait time is 48 hours from refferal to allocation. Liberty does not believe in keeping people on waitlists more than 4 weeks. If we do not have immediate capacity, we will only keep you on a waitlist when we have hired someone suitable and are leading up to their start date.
Behaviour support can merge the expert knowledge of multiple sources supporting the participant with the skills and background of the practitioner. We look to intergrate into our plans 'local expertise' from those who know the participant best with the clincal knowledge of the practitioner.
Often this expertise is 'untapped' in the sense that you know some tecniques people are using, but there is additionally the Aunt who had on an outing one Wednesday and tried a technique that you might not know about or a support worker who once tried something else that worked that they didnt tell everyone about.
Whilst its our preference to work with the participant or their key representative, if you the primary carer or even the participant are unavailable for some of the plan, we can still be working to create a master 'recipe for success', whilst adjusting some existing techniques to enhance them and creating additional techniques for you to trial.
