Funded through the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, this program assists children, youth and adults with a diagnosis of intellectual disability to improve their social awareness and and develop alternatives for challenging behaviour using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis. Services are provided in an individual or group format. 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).
