Parenting doesn't always take a linear path. If your child exhibits behaviors that are challenging to deal with than behavioral consultation may be a path you would like to consider. The goal of Behavioral Consultation is to combine parent training with a complete assessment based on the principles of Humanistic Applied Behavior Analysis. This strategy includes a multiple-step-approach that involve a complete assessment process geared to address a wide variety of challenging behaviors. Behavioral consultations are appropriate for children of any age and can address problems such as self-harm, aggression, tantrums, non-compliance with requests, and more.
Consultation begins with intake and evaluation. The next step will be the development of a custom plan of intervention that is individualized to meet each child and families need. A typical treatment approach involves parent education on basic behavioral principles as they relate to your specific child's needs. A detailed assessment phase will include a review of any relevant documentation, observation in relevant settings, and collaborative implementation of a treatment plan that is designed to meet the needs of your child and family.
