What is a Transition?

Due to the cross-sector availability of BSO teams, their specialized support is often requested to support individuals with, or at risk of, responsive behaviours/personal expressions to move from one place to another. Supporting the BSO population to transition across sectors to new care settings can be complex due to the change in environment often contributing to the presentation of new or exacerbated responsive behaviours/personal expressions. In 2015, the Behavioural Support Integrated Teams (BSIT) Collaborative was launched as part of Ontario’s Best Practice Exchange, supported by the BSO Provincial Coordinating Office and brainXchange. Its overarching goal is to bring forward emerging and best practices related to facilitating safe, successful and sustainable transitions across sectors for individuals with or at risk for responsive behaviours/personal expressions.
