functional assessments

Functional Assessments by Arbour Consulting provide detailed descriptions of the component parts of any challenging behaviour and explain why behaviours occur.

These individualized assessments begin with a personal profile (strengths, challenges, communication skills, learning style). The profile considers the person as an individual, as a member of a family and also as part of a culture and greater community.  This information provides understanding of strengths and challenges from different perspectives and ensures involvement from professionals and other helpers is informed, consistent and respectful. 

Personalized recommendations are used to develop a comprehensive support plan.  Support plans reflect needs of the individual as well as the needs of the caregivers - to ensure they are viable and sustainable.
