About Fabic Behaviour Specialists
Fabic Behaviour Specialist Centre is a one-stop shop for behavioural services supporting LASTING behaviour change in people of all ages and demographics.
We are the world leader in offering simple, practical yet significantly effective strategies that bring understanding and lasting behaviour change – we make lasting behaviour change accessible to all.

We are all the same
Fabic holds equality as a core foundation and thus we know that everyone is the same, although we all present differently. Whether we are short or tall, young or old etc., at Fabic we hold everyone as an awesome, amazing lovable, being, recognising that the behaviours that come from each being don’t always match their awesome quality.
At Fabic we separate the being from the behaviour and know that every single behaviour happens for a reason; albeit that reason may not yet have been identified. We hold the REASON, the initial root cause of the behaviour (i.e. the function of behaviour) to be of far greater importance than what the behaviour looks like (i.e. the form of behaviour).
And thus, we do not label or judge behaviour to be ‘right or wrong’ or ‘good or bad’ etc.; instead, we know that bringing understanding to the reason for any non-preferred behaviour is the only way to truly support anyone to bring lasting behaviour change for themselves or any other person.
The Fabic methodology is based on The Body Life Skills Program, a simple, effective and powerful tool to bring lasting behaviour change in any circumstances. The Body Life Skills program was founded by Fabic Director and Principal Behaviour Specialist, Tanya Curtis as a formalisation of the methodology she has established and used in her services since 2006.
The Body Life Skills program brings simplicity and usability to the evidence-based practice of Functional Behaviour Assessment.
The acronym ‘Fabic’ stands for Functional Assessment and Behaviour Interventions Clinic.
