Behavioural Consultation and Assessment
Challenging behaviours can interfere with an individual’s successful participation in their community, strain their relationships and have a negative impact on their day to day life. These behaviours arise due to a mixture of lacking environmental supports and accommodations paired with lagging skills.
Behaviour consultation involves working with children, youth, their families and their larger teams to discover the ‘why’ behind the behaviour, which will lead to identifying the necessary accommodations as well the adaptive and functional skills that require teaching to support the individual to meet their goals.
Behaviour consultation may include a functional assessment, parent and caregiver training, school collaboration and IEP support, one to one teaching and/or counselling and the development of a home team.
