REACH North West

REACH North West is a voluntary community group that supports autistic children and their families. We create individualised support packages to meet the whole families needs.

We help children to REACH their true potential by providing services that assist children to overcome communication difficulties and barriers to learning using a multi-disciplinary approach.

In addition we also provide practical advice, information, training and build partnerships with families, school and other professionals

Positive Behaviour Support

The overall aim of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is to improve the quality of a person’s life and that of the people around them. This includes children, young people adults as well as older people.

PBS provides the right support for a person, their family and friends to help people lead a meaningful life and learn new skills without unnecessary restrictions. It is not simply about getting rid of problematic behaviour

What is PBS?

An understanding of the behaviour of an individual. It is based on an assessment of the social and physical environment in which the behaviour happens, includes the views of the individual and everyone involved, and uses this understanding to develop support that improves the quality of live for the person and others who are involved with them.

  • Positive Behaviour Support is a person-centred approach used to support those with autism or Learning difficulties. 
  • It is backed by evidence from behavioural science
  • Provides support based on inclusion, choice, participation and equality of opportunity

What are the key principles?

  • PBS seeks to understand the reasons for behaviour so that unmet needs can be met
  • Considers the person as a whole - their life history, physical health and emotional needs
  • It's proactive and preventative, focusing on the teaching of new skills to replace behaviours that challenge
  • Combines perspectives from different professionals

Is it ethical?

Positive Behaviour Support is ethical because it is:

  • Person-centred
  • Involves all stakeholders, including the individual
  • Carried out for the benefit of the individual
  • Does not use punishment
  • Transparent and honest
