Positive Response Training & Consultancy provides evidence-based solutions to the prevention and management of complex challenging behaviours in people with developmental disabilities and other special needs. Our focus is on increasing the quality of life and wellbeing of people who use services, and the accumulated benefits derived by carers and families.
All staff have significant experience in supporting people with challenging behaviours. This experience is derived from practical delivery of direct support, management, clinical leadership as well as in academia, and spans services for people with intellectual disabilities, autism, mental health needs, dementia and acquired brain injury. The team is led by Dr David Allen, the clinical director, assisted by a lead trainer and business manager, supported by approximately 20 experienced trainers based around the UK and drawn from a variety of backgrounds.

Our aim is to provide high-quality training for organisations and families supporting people with complex behavioural challenges. Our PBMplus training is underpinned by the principles and values of Positive Behavioural Support and has been used for over 30 years, delivering person-centred, socially valid approaches to the prevention and safe management of behaviours that challenge. Working in partnership with referring agencies we strive to improve the quality of life of vulnerable people in care services and to reduce the use of restrictive practices.
