Children can show that something isn't right in their lives in many different ways. They may lash out, grades may slip, they may be irritable or they may not be themselves. Usually there is an underlying issue that hasn't been addressed properly. We'd like the opportunity to help.
Behavioral intervention is a type of behavior modification therapy that uses reinforcement to intervene in behaviors that could negatively affect a child’s or adolescent's life.
Behavioral interventionists work directly with patients to implement therapy programs based on their individual needs. This allows your child to receive exposure to programs from each discipline every time they are seen. Skills developed through intervention therapy include but are not limited to:
The BI, can also help with a Functional Behavioral assessment.
The functional behavioral assessment is a behavior-focused evaluation using a structured process to gather data for a special education IEP. With it, the FBA team collects information on a child’s behavior when that behavior becomes disruptive and negatively impacts their learning. The FBA works to identify the behavior, its cause, and what reinforces it to become a pattern in the classroom. Once the FBA team has enough data on the behavior, they use it to develop interventions that lower the incidence of the behavior and instead encourage more positive and productive ones.
We all deserve happiness and we'd like to help your child find their path.
