What are challenging behaviours?
Challenging behaviours include those where there is a risk of harm to the NDIS participant and/or others (for example, to support workers, family members and friends). However, it’s important to understand that in some cases these behaviours can be a source of great comfort to the individual. Minimising or preventing the behaviour can therefore be a cause of great stress.
The design of SDA homes can help the SDA participants to continue with the behaviour while eliminating the risk of harm to themselves and others.
