Individual Programs for Students
We can consult with teaching staff regarding specific student needs and create behavioural plans to support the student and their teaching team.
These programs usually involve an intake meeting with the teacher and parents of the student, followed by an observation of the student and then a plan to support the student and teacher. Follow up appointments are decided on as a team, based on individual need.
