What is Regulated Restrictive Practices Support?
In certain situations, supporting participants may necessitate the utilization of restrictive practices to safeguard the participant and those around them. A restrictive practice, as outlined in Section 9 of the NDIS Act (2013), is defined as any practice or intervention that limits the rights or freedom of movement of an individual with a disability.
Regulated Restrictive Practices Support
We are dedicated to providing support through a Positive Behavior Support framework. This evidence-based approach not only enhances an individual’s quality of life but also reduces the occurrence of challenging behaviors.
We recognize that restrictive practices are temporary measures implemented to ensure safety. Consequently, our primary focus centers on devising and implementing positive strategies to minimize their necessity and, over time, to eliminate their use.
We provide support to numerous participants with complex support needs, some of whom have regulated restrictive practices in place. We understand that for families, nominees, or guardians, navigating the systems essential for supporting someone with restrictive practices can be confusing and overwhelming at times.
