What is ABA?
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a science that aims to improve socially significant behaviour. ABA is used to increase behaviour and to teach new skills. It can also be used to reduce behaviours that might be interfering with an individual's ability to learn or participate in their community.
Kerry is available for consultation regarding questions you might have about your child. Many parents struggle with things such as:
Picky eating and/or challenging meal time behaviour
Teaching their child how to sit for longer periods of time to complete a task such as homework
Teaching their child how to self-regulate
Helping their child to overcome certain fears or phobias like riding in an elevator or getting a needle at the doctor's office
Kerry is available to help! Clinical consultation consists of an initial meeting with Kerry so she can understand your concerns and goals for your child. Following this, Kerry will complete a brief assessment and discuss her recommendations with you. Kerry is happy to work with you until you are feeling comfortable and confident to implement these strategies on your own.
