- Positive behaviour support (strategies to reduce challenging behaviours)
- Parent and service provider training

How we help your child
We use applied behaviour analysis.
Applied behaviour analysis (ABA) is the science of behaviour, which applies evidence-based strategies to improve socially significant behaviours.
The Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) approach teaches social, motor, and verbal behaviours, as well as reasoning skills.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) can be used to understand challenging behaviour and then support the development of replacement skills to ensure the problem is ineffective.
Positive Behavior Support Plans
A person-centred approach is the key to successfully bringing about an enduring change in behaviour. By investing time and resources in observing behaviours and conducting interviews with relevant parties, positive behaviour support strategies can be implemented and incorporated into individually devised behaviour plans which can be adopted across numerous settings leading to a reduction in problem behaviours.
Early interventions and home-based intervention
It is essential that the teaching of both academic and life skills are not only fun and captivating, but are supported by the knowledge and skills of a Behaviour Consultant, who is qualified and experienced in overcoming challenging behaviours.
Support can also be provided to address areas such as communication, eating, toileting and sleeping difficulties in all ages.
