Are you a Behaviour Support Practitioner?
Would you like to support providers with their Quality Assurance panels?
If so, please keep reading!
WAiS, in partnership with the WA Department of Communities, is establishing a register of independent Behaviour Support Practitioners for implementing providers to be able to source a Practitioner to sit on Quality Assurance panels to authorise the use of restrictive practices.
Under the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework, the State Government is responsible for establishing arrangements for the authorisation of regulated restrictive practices in NDIS services in WA. The WA Authorisation of Restrictive Practices Policy establishes the requirements for authorisation of restrictive practices in relation to people who are receiving disability services funded through the NDIS or by the State Government. https://www.wa.gov.au/organisation/department-of-communities/authorisation-of-restrictive-practices
Interested Practitioners must be employed by a registered behaviour support provider (or be a registered sole provider) under service group 110 with the NDIS, based and practicing in WA, and have submitted an s29 application to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission to be considered provisionally suitable to practice as a behaviour support practitioner.
Payments to Practitioners for their time on a panel will be made, in accordance with the NDIS Price Guide, through WAiS, funded by the WA Department of Communities.
Applicants will be required to submit a resume, responses to the following selection criteria along with a case scenario.
- Demonstrated knowledge of contemporary positive behaviour support (PBS) policy and practice for people with disability
- Significant experience in identifying restrictive practice and supporting systems to reduce the use of restrictive practice with people with disability
- Significant experience in PBS informed functional behaviour assessment
- Significant experience in behaviour support planning, including supporting behaviour support plan development and implementation
- Previous experience of participating in authorisation of restrictive practice processes, including panels
