Importance of Independent Behaviour Support

So many people rely on professional supports. We all need doctors, nurses, therapists of many disciplines, and specialists.

Yet in disability support many still accept in house practitioners for behaviour support and counselling. Even though these fields are highly specialist – or should be… the complexity of therapy in disability and mental health really requires at least masters qualified and experienced practitioners. But most orgs are lucky to have a bachelor qualified person on staff with little experience.

At Ability Therapy Specialists we have two doctoral qualified specialists on staff. We are independent. So we no longer need to be influenced by the policies and cultures of organizations and the politics this invariably brings. Having worked many years in different settings we have a heart of compassion for ways to deal with institutional cultures – but our focus is on advocacy for the NDIS participant and their family.
