Tackling Challenging Behaviours
Are you struggling with your child’s challenging behaviours?
Does your child seem like a different person at home than when with others?
Does your child go from 0-60 when having a meltdown?
Children with communication disorders, development delays, or autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often struggle with communication, social interaction, repetitive behaviour and rigidity with daily routines. And many children without these diagnosed disorders can struggle too.
We listen with care and compassion and provide expert guidance and solutions for various challenging behaviours. We can identify if the child has a skills deficit or performance deficit and plan out what needs to be taught to address these behaviours.
Challenging behaviours, such as aggression, tantrums, or self-injury are often a primary concern of parents and teachers. Using the science of ABA, we use observation and analysis to determine the function of the behaviour. This allows us to change the variables that have been learned and maintained by the environment they are in, and gently teach socially acceptable replacement behaviours.
ABA methods and strategies are scientifically proven to benefit children with social, communication, and behavioural challenges, including autism.
We can provide:
Functional Behaviour Assessments
Development of Behaviour Support Plans
Self-management strategies that empower the learner to independently manage their own behaviour
Direct work with learners to identify triggers, use self-regulation strategies, and practice socially appropriate responses
Training for parents, teachers and caregivers to adapt the environment to decrease the likelihood of challenging behaviour
Training for parents, teachers and caregivers to use ABA principles to increase cooperative behaviour with everyday tasks and activities
