Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is an evidence-based approach used to promote and enhance positive behaviour. It focuses on:
At TMB, we employ a person-centered approach to positive behaviour support. Every individual is unique and requires tailored support. Through careful observation and assessment, we identify the factors contributing to behaviours of concern, such as environmental influences, communication skills, social interactions, and overall physical and mental health.
We develop comprehensive behaviour support plans that emphasize proactive strategies. These plans involve creating a structured and consistent environment, setting clear expectations, and teaching alternative skills to replace problem behaviours.
Collaboration with families, caregivers, educators, and other professionals is vital in implementing positive behavior support effectively. We work closely with clients, families and their support networks to ensure consistency and promote a unified approach. By providing training, consultation, and ongoing support, we empower individuals and their support networks to implement positive behaviour support strategies effectively.
Positive behaviour support goes beyond managing behaviours of concern; it aims to enhance the overall quality of life. It is a holistic approach that considers the individual’s strengths, interests, and aspirations while addressing their unique challenges.
As a team of experienced Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA/BCaBAs), we help children to develop positive behaviour through evidence-based practices. We provide a comprehensive assessment of your child's behaviour and design personalised support plans tailored to their unique needs and abilities. Following the assessment, our team will guide your child towards acquiring socially meaningful behaviours and reducing behaviours of concern. We work collaboratively with you and other professionals involved in your child's life to create a supportive environment that fosters joy, safety and positive well-being. Together, we can empower your child to thrive and reach their full potential.
Behaviors of concern can vary from person to person. Here are some of the behaviours of concerns we are able to address:
Parent coaching can help you to understand your child's behaviour and to identify small, but meaningful changes to reduce behaviours of concern and improve your child's well being. Parent coaching can occur via telehealth, at our clinic, or in your home! Contact us to ask us more about this.
The Secret Agent Society Program can be a very helpful tool for you and your child in addressing behaviours of concern and helping them to learn skills of emotional awareness, self regulation and self-advocacy in social situations.
1:1 behaviour therapy in your home or our clinic is another excellent option. During behaviour therapy your child will learn the skills of communication, tolerance and cooperation in a safe, responsive and supportive environment.
For behaviours of concern occurring at school, we are happy to discuss options for working with your child’s school to conduct an observation and provide a support plan and training with school staff
