Behaviour problems are among the most common causes of difficulties for people with developmental disabilities. Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), for example, exhibit disruptive behaviours such as tantrums, aggression, self-injury, and property destruction. These behaviours can interfere with social interactions, learning, and daily functioning. Fortunately, there are a variety of behavioural interventions that can help people with ASD and other developmental disabilities to achieve greater success in their lives.
Applied behaviour analysis (ABA) is one of the most well-established and widely used behavioural therapies. ABA focuses on teaching desired behaviours and reducing disruptive ones. It is effective in treating a variety of behaviour problems in people with ASD and other developmental disabilities. Other helpful behavioural interventions include positive behaviour support (PBS) and functional communication training (FCT).
By working with a qualified behavioural support specialist, many people with developmental disabilities can learn the skills they need to lead more successful lives.
Our Behavioural Support Program
At Iconic Care, we understand that sometimes people with disabilities respond to an environment or situation with challenging behaviours; caring for someone who displays these behaviours can be difficult and distressing if there are no effective strategies to address and manage these situations.
Our Positive Behavioural Support Program is designed to help people with special needs develop the skills they need to lead happy and fulfilling lives. We work with individuals and their families to identify areas of need and create customized treatment plans that address those needs. Our specialists include psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals dedicated to helping our clients reach their fullest potential. We also offer support services for families, including respite care and crisis intervention. Our goal is to provide the resources, positive behavioural interventions, and support our clients and their families need to thrive. If you or someone you love is dealing with special needs, we encourage you to reach out to us today. We are here to help.
Our life support behavioural institute aims to reduce challenging behaviors by:
Our Behaviour Support Team is made up of multidisciplinary practitioners, which allows us to develop a holistic understanding of the person with challenging behaviours, and to develop creative and innovative Behaviour Support Plans.
