Positive Behaviour Support (PBS): Support for Families with behavioural concerns.

For children with additional needs a new online service has gone live this week, developed by our health colleagues to support families waiting for specialist assessments. The Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) online course helps families to understand the messages their child is trying to communicate and offers some practical skills and strategies that can be used to help manage behaviours that challenge.

The PBS video sessions, normally available through face to face workshops for families of children awaiting assessments by specialist teams, have been produced during the Covid-19 outbreak to offer support to all families.

Parents can access any or all six video sessions at times convenient to them at https://www.justonenorfolk.nhs.uk/pbs.
