I offer a comprehensive skills assessment, and based on this assessment, I can design and develop a tailor made, behaviour analytical, individualised education/home programme for your child. A wide variety of developmental targets and milestones are typically incorporated into a child's individualised education programme, in order to provide extensive learning across all developmental domains. Areas of interest for an individualised home programme can include:
Functional speech, language and communication (Verbal behaviour)
Daily living Skills
Cognitive Skill Sets
Any Other Individual Targets Required
Once your child's individualised home programme is designed, ongoing training will be provided to either parents, caregivers or home tutor on the implementation of all programme goals. Regular, ongoing supervision and evaluation of the home programme is also provided, to ensure progress and development of all home programme goals. Alternatively, you can book sessions with myself, where I implement your child's individualised home programme directly, in a one to one setting, and review goals and progress with parents and other professionals, as necessary.
When children are presenting with behaviours that challenge, a functional behaviour assessment will be conducted, in order to discover the function of, or 'reason' for, these challenging behaviours, and from this, I seek to provide an alternative, functionally equivalent, replacement behaviour, that is of social importance, that will provide meaningful change for children, their families, and other persons in the environment. I would also seek to incorporate skills teaching for your child in order to ensure that they can navigate their surroundings successfully and avoid any future complications.
A positive behaviour support plan will be designed and developed based on the results of a functional behaviour assessment, and parents, tutors, therapists and teachers will receive training on its implementation. Ongoing monitoring and supervision of its implementation is facilitated, and revisions are made when necessary.
Functional Behaviour Analytic Assessment and Positive Behaviour Support Plan
Skills Assessment and Individualised Education Plan
I provide parental consultations, behaviour analytical training and BCBA supervision for your work with your child, remotely via zoom, skype and telephone calls.
Depending on your child's needs, this can range from positive behaviour support planning, verbal behaviour and communication teaching or early intervention therapy and/or specific developmental goal programming. Whatever is required by you and your child, this will be facilitated on an online platform.
Through teletherapy, a structured team-based approach is adopted, which research has shown to have huge positive impacts on a child's therapy and learning. More meaningful and positive outcomes stem from parents taking an active role in their child's learning and progression, which is why I am so passionate about parent training and working alongside parents, to support them in teaching their children. I can provide one to one parent feedback and evaluation on their implementation of homework that I have provided via video recordings, and centre support around parent's direct implementation of therapy with their children.
Remote Online Consultation - Teletherapy
I provide school and teacher consultations on behalf of children within their classroom, or as requested directly by the school, and I provide training to teachers on how to implement their pupils individualised education/home programmes and positive behaviour support plans.
I also offer this training to home tutors and other professionals, from all backgrounds, who are working on an ABA home programme.
I am a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) who can supervise students in pursuit of their Registered Behaviour Technician (RBT) credential, BCaBA examination or BCBA examination.
In addition to the above mentioned, I can, on request, conduct informative talks for parents, staff and teachers and provide training evenings on behaviour analysis applied to a given area of interest e.g. verbal behaviour, challenging behaviour etc.
