Our Board Certified team conduct initial assessments to discover where the gaps are in your child's development. These assessments can include the VB-MAPP, ABLLS-R, VABS, Functional Behaviour Assessment for undesirable behaviours, classroom assessments, and reading assesssments such as the WRMT-III. Once we know where the gaps are we know what to teach. Email us today to book an assessment for your child.

Working with Schools

 We have a partnership with a number of kindergartens, primary schools and special schools in South Australia to  provide professional development trainings to teachers and support workers in applied behaviour analysis. Our trainings give teachers the means to look at behaviours in terms of their function - why they happen, and are given some ideas around data collection and strategies to put in place. If you're a part of an educational setting that could benefit from a training please contact us for more information.

RBT Trainings

We run several Registered Behaviour Technician trainings each year in conjunction with Dr Eric Messick, BCBA-D. These trainings are for anyone interested in working in our field as a behaviour technician / therapist. Please contact us for our next RBT training dates.
