Behavioral Supports is a service that helps train and educate the members of participants’ support teams to be effective in their responses to the participants’ needs. The goal of this service is to help the participant and their team members learn how to understand and cope with behaviors and psychological responses.
Behavioral Supports aims to help all those involved learn about emotional regulation, which in turn helps to decrease participants’ negative behaviors. People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities experience a wide range of emotions and physiological responses to their environment and their bodies. It is our goal to teach them how to cope with these responses as well as to teach their support teams how to help them deal with their day-to-day lives.
