Positive Behaviour Support Plan Assessment Clinic


Challenging behaviours can be a regular part of development and testing boundaries as children grow. They communicate an underlying challenge for your child. Identifying the factors contributing to the behaviour and addressing these can often improve the challenging behaviour. 

A full assessment can be beneficial when the behaviour has a persistent and significant detrimental impact on the child’s functioning. The evaluation can help determine the underlying function of the behaviour and the factors that may maintain it. 

Positive behaviour supports are then put in place to assist in the development of more functional behaviours. This behavioural assessment package can be invaluable in managing challenging behaviours in the context of Autism, ADHD, Developmental Delay or other learning and developmental difficulties.


  • A parent interview and review of your child’s developmental and presenting concerns
  • Analysis and interpretation of teacher and caregiver data records of observed behaviour
  • Observation of your child in school/kindergarten/childcare
  • Standardised behavioural questionnaires completed by parents and teacher
  • Feedback session to discuss findings and recommendations
  • A detailed report which provides positive behaviour support strategies.

The assessment will generally take 4-6 sessions and allow a comprehensive picture of your child’s behaviour patterns across time and contexts.


Medicare rebates may apply when undertaking a behaviour assessment as part of a Mental Health Care Plan recommended by your child’s GP or Paediatrician. Assessment reports do not attract a Medicare rebate.
