Get the most out of your child’s school day!
There are many issues that may create barriers to a child’s successful educational experience. If a child has a wide range of possible difficulties in such areas as attention, fine motor, socialization, language or executive functioning, the educational environment can become very challenging and frustrating. They can in turn result in related behavior problems in social relationships, success in school, and their health.
Behavioral consultation on-site can be effective in supporting educational teams by initially providing observation and screening for developmental or behavioral problems. It can help to determine if parents and educators should just “watch or worry”, or make definitive plans to have a child evaluated by a Licensed Professional or Physician. A Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) can also be helpful to determine the function of a specific observable problem behavior, with resulting recommendations for intervention and treatment.
