Behaviour Support Practitioner - Professional Development Webinars

We invite Behaviour Support Practitioners to a series of four free professional development webinars. 

The webinars relate to some of the knowledge and skills needed to meet the Positive Behaviour Support Capability Framework. We hope you find them useful to build on formal training you may have undertaken.

The webinars are available here. They include slideshows and videos which can be viewed at any time.

National Disability Services would like to acknowledge the two-year grant funding from the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission which allowed these webinars to be developed.
