INVOLVING FAMILIES


Parent training is an important component of the treatment process.  Behavioral Specialists of Louisiana partners with families to help them understand behavioral presentations and to give family members the tools they need to promote positive outcomes for their loved one. 



Achieving Outcomes

Individualized Services


Assessment leads to development of an individualized treatment plan or strategy for each person. All persons receive 1:1 attention. Strategies are adjusted to suit the progress and goals of the individual. 


Positive behavior supports


Treatment protocols recognize the uniqueness of each person and customize the behavioral technology to meet individual needs.  The goal is to treat the whole person, within the context of the environments they encounter naturally, and not to focus on the person's presentation as a disease, disorder, or disability.
