EVIDENCE-BASED BEHAVIOURAL SERVICES

Evidence-based behavioural services (EBBS) are based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), and are designed to support persons with ASD in various areas including: school and group readiness, communication, social skills, daily living skills, independent play and leisure skills, emotional regulation, vocational skills, and behavioural change.


Clinical Intake Meeting

A member of our team will meet with the family and the person with ASD (either at the family home or at a centre) to understand the goals and needs of the person and family. During this meeting, the Behaviour Therapist will capture current information regarding areas of strength and areas in need of development. This information is reviewed by our team of Clinical Supervisors, all of whom are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA) and will recommend service options to best meet a family’s goals.


Behaviour Consultation Packages

All of our behaviour consultation packages are customized to a person’s strengths and needs, as well as your family goals. Our highly skilled team will gather information about your priority goals, complete an assessment, and create an individualized plan, outlining strategies to achieve these goals. Each option includes a combination of direct support for the person with ASD, mediator training, and supervision from one of our Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA). Services may take place at a Kerry’s Place site or in your home.

Examples of goals may include, but are not limited to:

  • establishing and/or developing communication skills
  • language based programs
  • activities of daily living such as toilet training, hygiene routines, and more
  • addressing challenging Behaviour
