Providing Quality Applied Behaviour Analysis Services to Durham Region since 1986

At Lake Ridge Community Support Services we offer a range of behaviour therapy services to assist children, youth and adults with a diagnosis of intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorder to improve their social awareness and develop alternatives for challenging behaviour using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). In this service, treatment goals are collaboratively established with the individual and/or caregivers to promote growth, independence, and an improved quality of life. During this service our trained clinicians conduct functional assessments, develop individualized behaviour plans using evidence-based intervention strategies, and provide training to the individual’s support system. All services are supervised by Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA).
