The goal of the Behavior Support Service is to reduce the frustration, injuries, stress, placement failures and crisis situations that results when children who have persistent and difficult behaviors are not provided with the support that they and their caregivers and/or educators need.
Activities focus on assisting parents and/or educators to change their behaviors and using the child's 24 hour environment to promote positive interactions, experiences and behaviors.

Services will focus on developing supports in the child's environment and improving interactions with educators, parents, siblings and the community in order to address:
- Challenging behaviors

- Adaptive skills.
