Positive Support for Challenging Behaviours

Expert Guidance

Individuals with communication disorders, development delays, or autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often struggle with communication, social interaction, repetitive behavior and rigidity with daily routines. Challenging behaviors, such as aggression, tantrums, or self-injury can result and 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 environment, and teach socially acceptable replacement behaviors.

Services include:

  • Functional Behaviour Assessments

  • Development of Behaviour Support Plans

  • Training parents, teachers and caregivers to adapt the environment to decrease the likelihood of challenging behaviour

  • Training parents, teachers and caregivers to use ABA principles to increase cooperative behaviour with everyday tasks and activities

  • Developing 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
