What we do

IPBS provides support to children and young people experiencing moderate and severe learning disabilities (LD). 

The two Intensive Positive Behaviour Support (iPBS) services are teams of specialists based within the Bristol and South Gloucestershire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services for Learning Disability (CAMHS-LD). These specialists include:

  • Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) practitioners
  • assistant psychologists
  • clinical psychologists 

Together, we work with children and young people whose significant developmental, emotional, and mental health problems cause distress and affect their ability in different areas of their day-to-day lives. Our services provide intensive community and school-based support to help young people with their challenging behaviour.
