Idea Specialist Services had the nationwide contract for behaviour support for people with a disability.
Complex Support Advisor, (Former Employee) – Kaitaia, Northland – 23 November 2014
They provided me with very good peer and supervision support as well as enrollment in extra-mural tertiary learning. I always felt supported and encouraged to achieve the best possible results for service users and the company. Unfortunately Idea lost the nationwide contract and so they could not then renew my individual contract. The days were very busy gathering clinical evidence, talking to individuals and groups, and writing and evaluating reports. I found this work very challenging and extremely enjoyable because I was really making a difference to the lives of people and their support network. I learned how to gather the information needed in the most effective and efficient way and present it to a wide cross section of the community in simple language.
