Child and Youth Services

Behavioural Assessment

All individual services must begin with an assessment. The assessment can focus on skill building or behaviour reduction (Functional Behaviour Assessment) and incorporates family goals. Therapists (1:1 ratio) deliver the assessment with supervision from our senior clinicians who are Board Certified Behavior Analysts® and Ontario Autism Program Clinical Supervisors. Therapists start by building relationships and having fun with children and youth, a process called pairing. At the end of the assessment, we provide a report of skills and meet to review the results and set goals for intervention
