We also work closely with a bank of associates with varying specialisms in Positive Behaviour Support and other evidence based therapies. These specialisms include: Personality Disorder, Acquired Brain Injuries, Dementia, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Feeding Disorders, Alternative Communication Systems, Research, Active Support, Wellbeing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy & Practice Leadership. This means that if there is something we don’t know, we can usually find someone who does!
We currently use the experience and knowledge of Roy Deveau from the Tizard Centre and Dr. Bobby Newman (BCBA) to support, advise and supervise some of our work.
We consider ourselves fortunate to have links with a strong network of people ranging from people who use services, families, support workers, social workers, senior operators, clinicians, academics and commissioners. We even know an ex fighter pilot who is involved with a fantastic charity that supports people with disabilities to fly planes!!!
All of these individuals have helped us shape PBS uk into what it is today and many of these people feel like part of the team to us! (we are incredibly grateful for your counsel, guidance, the occasional challenge and of course your support)
