Many people with disabilities have complex support needs related to the interplay of social disadvantage and multiple other factors such as poor health or mental health, cognitive impairment, autism or limited communication that leads to challenging behaviours and their exclusion from services, the imposition of restrictive practices or incarceration in the criminal justice system. In this subject, students will explore the various sub-groups of people with disability who have complex support needs and explore different theoretical approaches to understanding and supporting challenging behaviours, such as positive behaviour support, psychodynamic theory and enabling environments.
