Behaviour Assessment & Support Services

Program Overview

The Behaviour Assessment & Support Service program offers services for children and youth with support needs ages 0-18 and their families/caregivers who are experiencing challenges managing behaviours that adversely affect their quality of life. The focus of the program is to assist the child or youth and their family to reduce or eliminate challenging behaviours while developing social, communication, peer relationships and life skills. The program behaviour consultants and family support counsellors conduct a range of assessments to develop individualized positive behavioural support plans. Once the support plan is developed, counsellors teach families skills to help reduce target behaviours and increase their functional skills, while improving their quality of life.
