Our Behaviour Therapists can provide support in the following areas:

Emotional Regulation

Self-regulation is a person’s ability to adjust and control their energy level, emotions, behaviours and attention. Clients can work on strategies to manage emotions more effectively, such as reducing anxiety, anger, or impulsivity and increasing emotional resilience and coping skills.

Behaviour Management

Consultants can focus on interventions that decrease behaviours such as tantrums, aggression, self-injury, or repetitive behaviours, and implement strategies to manage and cope with sensory sensitivities or overstimulation. Our behaviour therapists use the PEA/PEO model to consider behaviours from a holistic perspective.

Flexibility and Adaptability

Behaviour therapists may focus on improving the child's ability to cope with changes in routine, transition between activities, and tolerate unexpected events or sensory stimuli. Behaviour consultants can support families in using strategies to reduce anxiety in these events.

Play Skills

Goals involving play may include engaging the child in imaginative play, participating in group activities, supporting them in shared interests with peers, and enjoying recreational activities independently or with others. Our behaviour therapists ensure that they are introducing play skills at the child's pace, and including the child's interests in play by using strategies such as following their lead.

Safety Skills

Behaviour consultants often incorporate safety goals into intervention plans for children with autism, and those with similar challenges, to help them learn how to navigate their surroundings safely. This can include stranger danger, road and car safety, and fire safety.

Augmentative & alternative

communication

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) refers to non-verbal communication. This can be "low-tech" using paper materials and pointing or "high-tech" using a device such as an iPad. Behaviour therapists often work with SLPs to support children in using a multimodal approach to communication to support their ability to express wants and needs and communicate effectively.
