Some National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants require additional support to manage potentially harmful behaviours. In escalating situations, this might require the use of regulated restrictive practices in order to prevent an emergency or protect the participant and those around them. As these types of supports have been identified as high-risk (i.e. potentially causing harm to the participant and others around or supporting them), there are specific requirements that providers must follow.
