Behaviour Support and Restrictive Practices: Team Leaders

Managing the team's approach to behaviour challenges and restrictive practices is an essential skill for frontline team leaders.

Team Leaders must have a solid understanding of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) practice and how to work with the many different players across the behaviour support landscape.

This 'theory in practice' workshop covers:

  • Identifying what are restrictive practices?

  • Managing the difficult conversations with participants, families and Behaviour Support Practitioners

  • Supporting teams to effectively implement the NDIS key requirements

  • Improving outcomes and meeting compliance requirement

Behaviour support and restrictive practice receives a lot of attention from the NDIS Commission.

This workshop consolidates our facilitator’s experiences about where things go wrong, how Team Leaders can prevent non-compliance and provide good support.


Rob Woolley

Our very own Woolly Mammoth, pulls up last in the alphabetical rankings but always gets a place on the DSC podium for combining curiosity with smarts. He knows so much about the NDIS it is scary. Rob lives a personal commitment to sharing his knowledge with an endgame of people with disability in control. Combining lived experience of the early childhood intervention pathway with professional experience of the realities of provider life - he has consistently shown the inability to hold down a real job. His roles in the disability sector have covered direct support work, project management, business development, consulting, ILC-funded advocacy roles and owner-operator of a registered and then unregistered provider (but the thing he is best at is being a very present dad). If you want a consultant or trainer in your corner you will be looking high and low to do better than our Rob.

Therese Morgante

Therese comes to Team DSC with over 25 years experience in the sector across a range of government, consulting and provider roles. She has played key roles throughout Victoria's progression towards individualised funding, including design and initial implementation of self directed funding at the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and supporting the establishment of the Barwon NDIS pilot site. As a clear thinker, Therese is able to get to the heart of an issue quickly to solve policy dilemmas. When she is not touring suburban sporting grounds with her two sons or obsessively watching documentaries on the British Royal Family, Therese is an avid reader, improving cook, lover of Australian politics and (very) amateur art critic.
