Proven experience and expertise
Maybo's learning methods are consistent with the principles of positive behaviour support, focusing on primary and secondary strategies for preventing and defusing behaviours of concern. This enables staff to:
- Better understand a child's physiological and emotional needs
- Improve their environment and relationships
- Engage them in ways that reduce behaviours that challenge
- Reduce the need for restrictive practices
Alongside proactive strategies to reduce behaviours of concern, we teach reactive strategies to safely de-escalate emotive situations.
In some settings, physical skills may be occasionally needed to create safety and we can provide simple, low arousal methods appropriate for use as a last resort with vulnerable children and young people.
Our training is suitable for residential care, short break services, youth justice or educational settings and for children with additional needs. It can also be tailored to families and carers.
