Behaviour Consulting Services
Behaviour Consulting Services is a community support program for individuals over the age of two years who have a diagnosed developmental disability. Pre-school aged children who are at risk of developmental disabilities may be eligible for service. Such referrals are considered on a case by case basis.
The Behaviour Consultant works with those who provide care to an individual who has a developmental disability to develop strategies that encourage skill acquisition or behavioural change. All strategies are designed to build upon existing strengths and promote full participation in family and community life.
Behaviour Consulting Services offers consultation and training to community service providers and agencies regarding the development of behavioural support strategies.
Referrals are accepted from parents, agencies, physicians, schools, etc. with the consent of the individual/family being referred.
Services are offered in the counties of Hastings, Prince Edward and Lennox and Addington.
The Behaviour Consulting Services Program is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.
