Home > About Signposts > Our Approach

Signposts helps families develop strategies to manage or prevent difficult behaviour, encourage appropriate behaviour and teach children new skills. Evaluation shows that Signposts strategies have been used successfully by families to deal with a wide range of behaviours. Signposts can be offered in a number of ways. 

Delivered to groups or individuals face-to-face, the program consists of six to eight two to two-and-a-half hour sessions. Signposts delivered by telephone typically involves fortnightly half-hour consultations. With the self-directed method of delivery, parents receive the parent materials fortnightly and work on them independently. Participants receive the same materials regardless of how the program is offered.
