Support Coordination, Behaviour Support & Restrictive Practices

To keep the people you support safe, Support Coordinators need a strong understanding of the NDIS Behaviour Support service requirements including regulated restrictive practices.

In this interactive 3hr workshop we will unpack the skills, knowledge and resources a Support Coordinator needs to better understand restrictive practices and behaviour support under the NDIS.

We will provide useful links, tools and resources for your day-to-day practice in the complex jungle of restrictive practices. Workshop content includes:

  • Understanding the different types of restrictive practices, including authorisation and reporting

  • Identifying the different types of behaviour support plans and what to look for in a good quality plan

  • Clarifying reporting responsibilities

  • Understanding what you need to do as a Support Coordinator if you become aware of unregulated restrictive practices

  • Explaining the different roles and responsibilities of a Behaviour Support Practitioner and an Implementing Provider

  • Working with families who are implementing restrictive practices including navigating the authorisation and reporting requirements minefield

This workshop is appropriate for all Support Coordinator experience levels.

Presenters

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.

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!
