Behaviour support

Education Queensland provides a range of strategies to support the behaviour of all students in state schools. All schools have a Responsible Behaviour Plan for students. They can usually be found on their website.

Many schools are involved in Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) which is proactive, team-based approach and decision making framework that guides selection, integration and implementation of evidence-based practices for improving academic and behavioural outcomes for all students in a safe school environment. Emphasis is placed on prevention of problem behaviour, teaching and developing pro-social skills and the use of data-based problem solving that focuses on a functional approach.

A student may be engaging in inappropriate behaviour associated with their disability. When this is the case the school may implement a range of strategies or plans to make adjustments, so the student can engage in learning. These can include, but are not limited to: curriculum adjustments, differentiated curriculum delivery, classroom organisation, break time and transition adjustments. you should discus concerns about behaviour with your child's teacher, guidance officer, HOSES, deputy principal and principal.

If your child's behaviour outside school is a problem, you can seek advice from the school, or from disability support groups, community support organisations and other parents.
