Additional Information

 

Behaviour Consultation Services: Behaviour programming for children and youth with complex behaviours.

  • Individual programs are developed using current evidence-based best practices for individuals with complex developmental challenges.
  • Consultants work in partnership with parents/caregivers, school and community team members to complete a Functional Behaviour Assessment and to develop and implement a Comprehensive Behaviour Plan.
  • Consultants focus on skills development, believing that challenging behaviour is most often the result of lagging or missing skills.
  • Consultants focus on strengthening the skills of the individual, but also the skills of the adults in the child’s circle.

  • All approaches and strategies are positive, proactive and strength-based interventions.
