    3. 6.3 Explain the importance of effective communication and positive interaction in primary
      prevention for individuals
    4. 6.4 Positively interact with an individual by providing the level of help and reinforcement that

    5. 7.5 Develop a participation plan with an individual that contributes to the reduction of challenging
      behaviour by actively supporting their engagement in a specific task
    6. 7.6 Work with an individual to identify skills that could be developed to enable greater
      participation in day-to-day activities.
