Summary Background: The quality and effectiveness of the support provided to people with disability who show challenging behaviour can be influenced by the design and content of their behaviour support plans (BSPs). This study examined some of the factors that might influence the quality of behaviour support plans and the impact of quality of BSPs on the use of restrictive intervention.

Method: An audit of the quality of a sample of BSPs submitted to the Senior Practitioner in Victoria in the years 2009 and 2010 was conducted using the Behavior Support Plan Quality Evaluation, 2nd Edition (BSP-QE II).

Results: Factors found to positively influence quality of BSPs included: involvement of behaviour consultants and involvement of clinicians from the Office of the Senior Practitioner (Office). Overall quality of plans was also negatively related to restrictive intervention use over time.

Conclusions:
The findings support the need for behaviour intervention and provision of clinical support. The findings also provide tentative support for the notion that the inclusion of evidence-based quality components into behaviour support plan formats may reduce the use of restrictive interventions.
