How can behavior support services help children and adults
Improve social interactions and quality of life
Reduce targeted behaviors while at Redwood, at home and in the community
Provide assistance and training for families, caregivers and staff
Children and adults improve social interactions and quality of life by learning new, functional behaviors to replace existing challenging behaviors.Our behavior specialists will work collaboratively with the child, adult, staff, and family to complete a functional behavior assessment through observation, interview and review of medical and background information.A positive behavior support plan is then developed and implemented.Behavior supports may take place in the program room, at home or at school and include staff training, modifications to the environment if needed, and ongoing monitoring of progress in everyday settings.
