Introduction to the care, support and treatment of persons with developmental disabilities and challenging behaviour: 1-2 day workshops for actual teams involved with individuals. These sessions are both training and consulting/capacity building efforts.
Program evaluation: in situ, practical applications of evaluation research practices.
Specialized residential supports
Networking in residential services and personal supports for persons with developmental disabilities and severe challenging behaviours whose needs are not met by existing services. These services are offered to agencies such as custodial or correctional institutions as well as forensic units acting as last alternatives for individuals who have nowhere else to go and are considered dangerous. Prisons, penitentiaries and often forensic psychiatry units are not intended nor are they staffed and equipped to properly meet the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and challenging behaviours such as aggression. Our firm helps develop and manage adapted, community-based, secure options for such individuals to live better lives, while receiving the supports they need in appropriate environments.
