Behaviour support is a proactive, team-based approach to improving the behavioural patterns of students, and is used to tackle underlying causes and reasons behind problematic behaviour. School-wide behavioural support emphasises the importance of examining and understanding the roots and the hidden nature of specific behavioural issues. Problematic behaviour can result from a variety of underlying issues, such as low self-confidence, psychological factors linked to the students’ home environment, distracting elements in the classroom, being uninterested or not intellectually challenged by the curriculum, etc. To achieve meaningful and durable change in behaviour, these underlying factors that trigger any problematic behaviour have to be identified first. Effective behavioural support drives positive change, builds on students’ strengths and interests, and helps students to gain necessary skills to help them develop alternative, more constructive behaviour.
