What is a Developmental Educator?

A Developmental Educator (DE) is a multi-disciplinary disability specialist with expertise in fostering the skills, independence and quality of life of individuals with developmental or acquired disabilities and their families.

How does it work?

Our Developmental Educator will work with the participant and their family/support network to form an individualised support plan base on identified goals.

Once a plan is established the participant will have regular sessions with the Developmental Educator working towards goals. Sessions can take place across various environments including:
– School
– Community Activities (sport and recreation, volunteer or special interest groups etc.)
– Home
– Workplace

What is Positive Behaviour Support?

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a service that aims to improve the quality of life and self-esteem of participants with a disability of all ages who are experiencing challenging behaviours through building the capacity to live an ordinary life.

Our team of NDIA registered practitioners * offer face to face therapy services in the Adelaide Metropolitan region as well as online services across South Australia. We work closely with parents and carers to develop a Positive Behaviour Support Plan that addresses behaviours of concern, and aims to improve quality of life for the person.

PBS may assist in:

  • Minimising the impact of challenging behaviour on home, education and sport and recreation environments.
  • Expanding social networks for participants and their carers through sporting and community links and social media.
  • Empowering families to manage behaviour challenges as they arise.

For more information download a copy of our Positive Behaviour Support Flyer HERE.

How does it work?

  • An initial assessment is conducted at the Inclusive Sports SA offices in collaboration with the family to discuss support required and information necessary to implement a plan.
  • Working closely with the family, a positive behaviour support plan, that includes observations and data collections across the participant’s environments, will be developed.
  • A tailored package is created and actioned to support the needs of the participant and their family.
  • Specific skill development services can be offered, including development of communication skills, and creation of personalised documents such as social stories and visual supports. Further assistance with case management and referral options can also be provided.
