Behavioral Consultant Services

Do you care for a child with challenging behaviors? You may need the support of a Behavioral Consultant.

Every child has his or her own unique personality and can make us laugh, cry, puff with pride or make us blush.

Children, like adults, learn to cope in various situations. On occasion, a child might not cope appropriately in a given situation. As a caregiver, your heart goes out to this child but you just don’t know how to respond. You need help.

A Behavioral Consultant is there to provide you with the assistance and support you need, at no cost to you.

How a Behavioral Consultant Can Help

The Behavioral Consultant provides services free of charge. Assistance can be offered to you through phone conversations, sending informational packets to you based on requested subject areas, or a visit to your location to discuss your needs and observe the child of concern. Contact the consultant as soon as you become aware of a concern. No issue is too minor.

Remember, the Behavioral Consultant is here to support you. They are not Child Care Licensing Specialists. Every consultation is confidential.

Teaching children appropriate behavior is a team effort between parents and child care providers. A Behavioral Consultant adds another important link to the team.
