Behavioral Aide Services
Fraser Behavioral Aides work one-on-one with a person on the autism spectrum to improve skills and implement goals from an individual behavior plan. This helps the individual replace inappropriate skills with appropriate daily-living, social, leisure and recreational skills.
Behavioral Aide Services are intended to be a part of a larger plan of mental health services for a client’s treatment. The need for services is determined through a functional assessment. Frequency and duration of the service varies according to an individual needs, but services are meant to be temporary, helping the individual transition to using skills independently.
Licensed mental health professionals conduct the diagnostic assessment, develop individual behavior plans, and supervise the behavioral aides who provide direct services.
The individual behavior plan may include:
- assisting with skill development in dressing, eating, and toileting
- assisting, monitoring and guiding to complete tasks
- observing and intervening to redirect inappropriate behavior
- assisting in age-appropriate self-management skills as related to the child’s emotional disorder or mental illness, including problem solving, decision making, communication, conflict resolution, anger management, social skills and recreational skills
- implementing de-escalation techniques
