Frequently Asked Questions 

Learn more about what you can expect from an Behaviour Support Practitioner career with Ability Action Australia.

Behaviour Support Practitioners work closely with NDIS participants of all ages, supporting them to reduce or eliminate behaviours of concern while fostering independence and enhanced wellbeing.

Here are a few traits that Practitioners need to possess:

  • Empathy: The ability to empathise with participants is one of the most important abilities for a Behaviour Support Practitioner. Being able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes will support you in building rapport and trust.
  • Patience: Practitioners are often presented challenging situations that require you to understand what a participant is experiencing and apply an effective approach. It is important that you are able to handle these emotions in a mature and professional manner.
  • Problem-Solving Skills: Behaviour Support Practitioners should be adept at analysing situations, identifying triggers, and developing effective strategies to address behaviours of concern.
  • Flexibility: Every individual is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Being adaptable and open to trying different strategies is important.
  • Active listening: Being attentive and fully engaged when individuals express themselves helps in gaining valuable insights into their concerns and needs.
  • Collaboration: Working collaboratively with other professionals, such as educators, therapists, and family members, enhances the overall support system for the individual.

We really do invest in our people.

  • Professional Development: Targeted training opportunities for skill and knowledge development in relation to the PBS Capability Framework led by our PBS Clinical Lead.
  • Clinical Supervision: Regular individual and group supervision sessions led by our dedicated PBS Clinical Lead, as well as multi-disciplinary case consultations to enhance the effectiveness of participant support.
  • Comprehensive Induction Program: Structured induction program, led by the PBS Clinical Lead, to support Practitioners in achieving PBS Capability Framework Core Competency and the necessary foundation knowledge to deliver a compliant service.
  • Leadership Mentor Program: Our parent company MedHealth offers unique opportunities for progression along with our Leadership Mentoring Program.
