TelePBS

The outbreak of COVID-19 increased the need for alternative service delivery design, as in person services are often limited by public health measures.

TelePBS is the delivery of positive behaviour support via telepractice. Telepractice is the delivery of services at a distance. Services can be delivered by face to face videoconferencing, audio videoconferencing, chat box videoconferencing, telephone, text messaging, emailing or a combination of these.

TelePBS is a way to provide timely, quality, low-cost behaviour support services.  It is also a way to improve access to these services for people with disability in rural and remote areas.

Resources available to support participants and practitioners to use TelePBS effectively include:

  • Participant and Practitioner guides
  • Videos explaining delivery, creative assessment and planning, and implementation and evaluation
  • A podcast series
