I conduct functional behaviour assessments to find information about the context of behaviours of concern, the skills that might be needed to replace the behaviour and the changes needed to make them and their support network feel safe and supported.
I also work closely with my participants and support network to develop behaviour support intervention plans and strategies to help them live a fulfilling life.
