Our behaviour therapy team helps people with developmental disabilities across the lifespan to develop meaningful skills and reduce challenging behaviours at home or in the community. Services may include assessment, consultation, intervention and/or group-based approaches. In partnership with the children and adults we serve and their caregivers, we focus on person-centred service delivery, identifying meaningful goals, prevention and skill-building for daily life.
Behavior therapy services are typically provided using a mediator model approach. This approach creates positive change by providing training and support to caregivers of people with developmental disabilities.
The requirements for the Behaviour Therapy program depend on age:
- 0-6 years: Suspected or confirmed developmental disability
- 6-18 years: Confirmed developmental disability
- 18 years +: Must be registered with Developmental Services Ontario, Toronto Region
