Professional frameworks for supporting people with intellectual disability



5 Jan 2016

Two useful resources are now available to help ADHC and non-government practitioners support people with intellectual disability. The Taking Time Framework and the Practice Improvement Framework aim to assist the disability sector to deliver high quality support to people with disabilities, their families and those in their support networks.

The Taking Time - Framework: A trauma-informed framework for supporting people with intellectual disability

The Taking Time Trauma-Informed Framework and accompanying literature review have been developed for service providers who support people with intellectual disability. The framework provides guidance for organisations to meet their obligations under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2008 and the NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014.

The Practice Improvement Framework for behaviour support

The Practice Improvement Framework is a guide for the delivery and evaluation of training, work practice support, supervision, knowledge and skills acquisition, and professional development for staff across behaviour support services in the disability sector.

The Practice Improvement Framework is available to government and non-government staff through an e-learning system. You will need to create an account if you do not already have one.
