Are you concerned about the behaviour of your family member?  

Don't worry - you are not alone.

Down Syndrome NSW's Behaviour Support Service focuses on:

  • helping to identify triggers and stressors to behaviour
  • helping to apply appropriate techniques to support that person
  • helping to provide inclusive solutions to ensure behaviour doesn't prevent that person from being excluded

We put the person with disability at the centre of our approach, providing specialist advice and guidance along the way.  This may include:

  • Phone calls with family members or carers to provide information and support
  • Interview with family, carers, teachers and other support staff
  • An assessment on environmental or emotional factors which could be contributing to behaviour
  • Finding techniques to best support the person according to their preferences and learning ability
  • Assisting families, carers and educators to implement plans and strategies
  • Providing capacity building and education to family, staff and other areas of support

Don't feel overwhelmed by worry.  Contact Behaviour Support on 02) 9841 4444 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
