Behaviour Support

Call us to know what’s Happening at Valley

Behaviour Support

Valley Mindspace Behaviour Support Services offers a premium quality service that is tailored to the unique needs of individuals who require approved behaviour support funding as part of their NDIS Behaviour Support plans.  Our approach is grounded in evidence-based practices and is person centred, meaning that we take the time to get to know each individual and understand their unique challenges to develop a personalised plan that meets their specific needs.

Behaviour support funding is allocated when a participant displays behaviour that may be challenging in their own environment.  These behaviours are referred to as ‘challenging’ because they present a unique challenge to everyone involved in supporting the individual in understanding why they are happening and how to work collaboratively to find solutions.  Our team of experts works closely with individuals, their families, and support networks to provide comprehensive support that is tailored to their specific needs and designed to help them achieve their goals and live a meaningful life.

Behaviour Support Plans

Our Behaviour Support Service is an interdisciplinary team of specialists with expertise in psychology, social work, and other related fields. The team collaborates to create personalised and comprehensive behaviour support plans that are tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual. Our plans are designed to address any challenging behaviours and provide strategies that are effective, evidence-based, and responsive to the person’s specific needs. We work closely with our clients to ensure that our plans are implemented successfully and our clients achieve their desired outcomes.

NDIS Behaviour Support Practitioners


The ultimate goal of positive behaviour support is to enhance the quality of life of an individual. These services are offered as part of the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) Support Category of Improved Relationships.

As someone who works in the field of Behaviour Support, I find the work to be incredibly rewarding. What I enjoy most about this profession is the fact that no two days are ever the same. I value the variety and flexibility that comes with the job, as it allows me to continue my professional development and hone my skills.


One of the most gratifying aspects of my work is the opportunity to collaborate closely with our participants, their families, and their support networks. By working together, we are able to create and implement tailored behaviour support plans that help improve the quality of life of our clients. Witnessing the positive impact that our strategies have on our clients is truly fulfilling. Seeing them gain increased access to the community and have fewer restrictions in their daily lives is a testament to the power of positive behaviour support.


I take great pride in being able to establish genuine connections with a diverse range of people. By doing so, I can help them access the activities and experiences that bring them joy and fulfilment. It is a privilege to help our clients achieve greater choice and control over their lives, and to empower them to explore new interests with confidence.

Amy Hogan

I have dedicated over a decade of my life to working in community services, and have held various roles in this field. As a mother of four children, two of whom require NDIS support. As a Behaviour Support Practitioner, my work gives me a deep sense of purpose and fulfilment. My role involves designing interventions that assess the factors affecting a person’s behaviour, with the goal of enhancing their quality of life and reducing any behaviours of concern. I find it incredibly rewarding to see the positive impact of these interventions on individuals’ lives.


One of the aspects of my job that I truly value is the collaboration and advocacy that comes with it. I work closely with various stakeholders, including allied health practitioners, family members, and support staff, to develop behaviour support strategies that align with person-centred practice and protect human rights. Advocacy for the individuals I support is at the very core of my work.


Data-driven decision-making is another key aspect of my role. I rely on measuring behaviours, assessing changes, and developing effective interventions that are guided by data, ensuring the best outcomes for the individuals I serve.  Empathy and connection are values that I hold dear. Building strong connections with participants and their support networks allows me to tailor interventions effectively and with mutual respect.


I find it incredibly meaningful to contribute to a good life for those who require a behaviour support plan, enabling them to reduce restrictive practices and achieve a better quality of life. Being part of this process is both impactful and truly fulfilling. I consider it a privilege to work as a Behaviour Support Practitioner, making a positive difference in people’s lives, promoting their rights, and fostering growth and independence.
