Behaviour Assessments

Using standardized testing and assessment tools, an individual client profile is developed. The assessment process sets a baseline of performance, learning style and personality dynamics. Knowing individual student strengths and area(s) of weakness ensures increased individual success. Assessments are conducted to ensure the development of a comprehensive treatment plan. Students are re-assessed regularly to ensure progress and achievement. Results of all testing are reported to parents verbally and in writing, providing function-based intervention using the principles of ABA.
