What is Positive Behavioural support (PBS)

Children and young people may show challenging behaviours through aggression towards others, such as hitting and kicking, throwing things, running away, hurting themselves, verbal aggression and stereotyped behaviours.

These behaviours may be of such intensity, frequency or duration that they can impact on the safety of the person or others. They can also limit or result in denial of access to community facilities, so that the child and young person can be at risk of social exclusion due to the behaviours they are displaying.
