Our Mission

CPBS believes that everyone deserves support and accessing the opportunities that can be made available to them – as such we will accept any referral with NDIS or self funding that requires behaviour support. We ensure that the individuals that we serve not only learn better ways to manage their behaviours, but also learn effective ways to communicate their wants and needs to others around them. We specialise in complex presentations and challenging behaviours.

Why CPBS?

CPBS has a team that can not only assess, design and create individualised behaviour support plans, we also have a team that can implement regular sessions and ensure that there is a smooth roll-out of the plan. We are a cutting-edge organisation who employs the latest technology in our clinical framework and workflows. We specialise in a person-centred approach, giving the focus person and their families the holistic support that they need. At CPBS, we look past the behaviour and design programs to develop the individual’s strengths, build support networks and make strong, lasting relationships.
