What is positive behavior support and consultation?

(1) Positive behavior support and consultation is available on all of the DDA HCBS waivers. A participant is eligible for positive behavior support and consultation if the participant is:
(a) Under age 21 and currently authorized to receive positive behavior support and consultation for the support of behavioral health or autism treatment when unable to access through the medicaid state plan; or
(b) On the community protection waiver and requires behavior support to address sexual aggression, arson, or assaultive behaviors which make the client eligible for the community protection waiver.
(2) Positive behavior support and consultation includes the development and implementation of programs designed to support waiver participants using:
(a) Individualized strategies for effectively relating to caregivers and other people in the waiver participant's life; and
(b) Direct interventions with the person to decrease aggressive, destructive, and sexually inappropriate or other behaviors that compromise their ability to remain in the community (i.e., training, specialized cognitive counseling, conducting a functional assessment, and development and implementation of a positive behavior support plan).
