This course is designed for staff and family members interested in learning more about intellectual disability, behaviours of concern and Positive Behaviour Support. It focuses on the Multi Element Behaviour Support (MEBS) Model of support. The 10 units will bring you through the process of MEBS, explaining the basic principles, assessment, data recording and the different intervention strategies used.
This course leads on from Positive Behaviour Support Part 1 with 6 units that focus on aspects of PBS in more detail, including professional ethical relating, principle of behaviour, building capacity & consent; systematic instruction and monitoring interventions. Completing Positive Behaviour Support Part 1 is required before undertaking this course.
There will be a short post test after each section to check your understanding. When you have completed all of these, you should forward a copy of the certificate to your Line Supervisor and to your Human Resources Department for your Training File.
