What is a restrictive practice?

A restrictive practice is any practice or intervention that has the effect of restricting the rights or freedom of movement of a person with disability.

Under the NDIS  (Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support) Rules 2018, certain practices are subject to regulation.

The use of restrictive practices (RP) to ‘address’ behaviours can be a serious breach of a person’s human rights – the use of RP is therefore embedded in legislation and regulated by both state and federal governments.

restrictive practices and complex supports

One of the central aims of positive behaviour supports, is to eliminate the use of restrictive practices

Our Experience

We currently support a number of participants who have significant complexity in relation to their support needs and for whom restrictive practices are in place.

We recognise that for families, Nominees or Guardians, the process of navigating the systems necessary for supporting a person with restrictive practices can be, at times, confusing or overwhelming.

Both the Providers and Guardians need to comply with the Queensland state based rules as well as those set by the NDIS Commission.

We have expertise in the requirements of the both the Queensland and NDIS Commission requirements in relation to restrictive practices and are able to offer support in navigating these systems.


Let’s talk about how we can be part of your story.
