Positive Support for Challenging Behaviours
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.

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
