This session consists of two linked presentations, both relating to systems-wide intervention for reducing challenging behaviour and improving the quality of life of people with learning disabilities in adult social care settings.  Peter McGill will start by discussing recent research that developed and evaluated a setting-wide, positive behaviour support intervention in supported living and residential care settings.  Nick Barratt will then talk about how this research led to the development of a new model of support, currently being implemented within Dimensions. The session will draw attention to the scope for the application of ABA-based approaches “beyond the individual”.
