Purpose of this notification form

Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support) Rules 2018, specialist behaviour support services are to be provided by an NDIS behaviour support practitioner. This applies to all behaviour support and is not specific to whether or not the practitioner includes regulated restrictive practices in their behaviour support plans. An NDIS behaviour support practitioner means a person the NDIS Commissioner considers suitable to undertake behaviour support assessments (including functional behaviour assessments) and to develop behaviour support plans. This form is to be used to provide the NDIS Commissioner with details of behaviour support practitioners engaged by your organisation in accordance with paragraph 29(3)(a) of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support) Rules 2018.

What happens after I submit this form?

This form will be used by the NDIS Commission for determining provisional suitability as an NDIS behaviour support practitioner. The provisional status will remain in place until the practitioner undergoes the assessment process against the Positive Behaviour Support Capability Framework. The Positive Behaviour Support Capability Framework focuses on the knowledge and skills that underpin contemporary evidence-based practice and reflects the diversity and variation of the sector’s capability in delivering behaviour support. A phasing approach will be used to manage when specialist behaviour support providers will be required to complete the assessment process. Providers will be contacted by the NDIS Commission with further information about this. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact the NDIS Commission Behaviour Support Team via email behavioursupport@ndiscommission.gov.au.

Requirement to lodge behaviour supports plans - online portal for behaviour support

If you create a behaviour support plan that contains a regulated restrictive practice, then it must be lodged with the NDIS Commission. From 1 July 2019 this can be done through the NDIS Commission Portal. Information about how to access the NDIS Commission Portal can be found on our website here https://www.ndiscommission.gov.au/providers/provider-registration/ndis-commission-portal . Additional information about how to lodge a behaviour support plan can be found on our website here https://www.ndiscommission.gov.au/providers/provider-responsibilities/behaviour-support.
