I love working with people – with or without a diagnosed disability.
Some people I work with have presenting symptom(s) that lead to a formalised diagnosed disability and/or mental health condition, while other people do not. Although a large part of my work is with people with diagnosed disability.

Self-paced eLearning with Tanya Curtis behaviour change specialist
Our behaviour support practitioners are here to support you.
Our team of Behaviour Support Practitioners include Behaviour Specialists, Speech Pathologists, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and Behaviour Counsellors. Read more about our clinical services below.
Whether you are experiencing extreme non-preferred or ‘just’ mild or moderate unwanted behaviours, we offer specialised clinical services for all who aim to identify the true root cause of why you or another are experiencing the behaviour in the first place.
The speech pathology service at FABIC is grounded in the understanding that difficulties communicating are blockages to the person’s true potential coming forth and being expressed. Once the blockage is addressed, the true ability to communicate will often emerge.
Our psychologists offer specialised clinical services for clients wanting to understand and change unwanted or non-preferred behaviour and support them to build strategies to truly enjoy their everyday life. We work with those with low-intensity unwanted behaviours right through to extreme high-intensity behaviours.
FABIC Occupational Therapy sessions are fun and engaging; they support both children and adults of all ages to function more independently each day and develop a living quality that allows them to enjoy life and live their full potential.
Behaviour counselling can support a person to develop the skills they need to respond to life and reach their full potential. FABIC’s behaviour counselling services can support others to develop the skills they need to respond to challenging life situations by supporting them to build responsibility, self-awareness and the practical skills needed.
The purpose of our assessments is never to compare one person with another, label or diagnose; rather, it is to utilise the results so that we are able to best support the client in their natural setting. The information sourced from the assessments can help ascertain the reason for non-preferred or unwanted behaviours being used.
FABIC’s Consultancy Services offer to support the development, implementation, training, monitoring, evaluating and modifications of behaviour change programs to any organisation or group that is seeking lasting behaviour change. Whether that be with human resources departments, on the ground staff and/or a group of people supporting behaviour change for one person, FABIC’s consultancy service can support.
Group Training Programs
Our training programs are designed for small groups of people who are experiencing similar challenges. To offer a supportive and cost-effective way of obtaining the same information you would normally get via six individual behaviour specialist consultations, participants are given the opportunity to access similar information in a small group over a block period of workshop-style presentations.
The FABIC staff mentoring program has been designed to support carers, staff, work colleagues and supervisors to implement strategies based on the Body Life Skills program to support the understanding and changing of non-preferred behaviour in a client’s natural environment. And the best way to do this is to train the staff to do so.
