When working in a Complex Behavioural setting, our models are:

  • Strength-Based

  • Trauma Informed

  • Evidence Based

 

 

Some of the clinical strategies that we use at ESS to facilitate a therapeutic environment for both staff and the people we support include:

  • MI - Motivational Interviewing

  • DBT- Dialectal Behaviour

SUPPORT SERVICES

 

ESS provide support to participants with highly complex needs and behavioural challenges, using a fluid strengths based services model where a number of approved and proven techniques are employed by support staff as required or within a scheduled program to achieve desired outcomes. In order to maintain a consistently high level of support, our staff are continually upskilling and exercising best practice methods.

Example of a Complex Disability Model would include a mix of the above with additions such as:

 

  • Positive Behaviour Support

  • ABA – Applied Behavioural Analysis

  • Social Stories

  • Development of appropriate sensory experience

  • Music, Art and Group Activities

  • High engagement with Community & Programs, i.e. sport, education, cultural activities and leisure activities with adequate supports

  • Referrals to community based partner services
