A Team Approach: Coordinating Behaviour Support In The NDIS

Successfully coordinate disability, medical and allied health professionals.

  • Tuesday 20 September
  • Annika Thorup
  • Shilo Preston-Stanley

High quality behaviour support requires a holistic team-based approach, often including allied health, GPs, nurse practitioners, support coordinators and support staff.

Knowing who to involve (and when) is essential. The NDIS Behaviour Support Capability Framework reinforces the range of inputs required, yet fostering effective collaboration in the NDIS remains a major challenge.

This webinar will explore how Behaviour Support Practitioners, Support Coordinators and Service Providers can successfully coordinate multiple disability, medical and allied health professionals to get better outcomes, more efficiently.

Come join us as we explore:

  • Who to engage in assessments and when, being proactive beyond the behaviour support waiting list.

  • The importance of a multi disciplinary, coordinated approach to positive behaviour support.

  • The evidence required to get adequate behaviour support funding in the NDIS plan.

  • How to address the challenges of working collaboratively in a fragmented system.

Who is this webinar for:

  • Service Providers and Team Leaders - understand the different roles of the team to take appropriate action and make timely referrals while waiting for BSP involvement.

  • Support Coordinators - understand the different roles of the team to help with more timely and coordinated services.

  • Behaviour Support Practitioners - core and proficient BSPs will benefit from a deeper understanding of different professions and how they can inform the positive behaviour support process.

Annika Thorup

Annika is a perfect match for DSC with her joy for making the NDIS world simple and accessible. Arriving from Denmark just in time to see NDIS kick-off down here, she puts her human rights and philosophy background to use not just as a DSC Expert Trainer, but also as a Support Coordinator at Ablelink, specialising in housing and complex supports. When she’s not busy building capacity, Annika rolls up her sleeves in the garage where she’s building her own campervan!

Shilo Preston-Stanley

Shilo is an operational manager and registered occupational therapist with 20 years’ experience in clinical and leadership positions across Australia and the UK in health, education and community services. Shilo has developed a strong commitment to multidisciplinary approaches for people with disability and is passionate about finding ways to collaborate across sectors, systems and organisations. She has a particular interest in how to modify or harness physical and social environments to increase people’s active participation in all parts of their life, decreasing the need for reactive strategies like restrictive practices. Shilo has been involved with the NDIS since the ACT trial began in 2013, first with policy roles in Education, then managing therapy services in their transition from block-funding to sustainable businesses and now as a Senior Manager overseeing Supported Independent Living services. When Shilo is not working, she can be found hanging with her teenagers (if they will let her) or trouble-shooting the answers to the world's greatest questions with her failed guide dog/soul-mate, Sinbad.
