Behaviour Services

Behaviour support is about creating positive individualized strategies for children and youth that are engaging in challenging behaviours or require support to learn new skills.

Challenging behaviours are defined as any behaviour that puts them or those around them at risk. These behaviours can also impact a child’s ability to engage in everyday activities.

  • Does your child need support to learn new skills?
  • Does your child have difficulties communicating their feelings, wants and needs?
  • Are challenging behaviours impacting your child’s learning?

We know that parents/caregivers spend the most time with their children.

One Kids Place Behaviour Services are tailored and individualized to meet your child’s needs.
