Challenging Behaviors

How Can BIG Help Me?

For children with typical challenging behaviors and those with more significant behavioral difficulties, Behavior Improvement Group has the experience and expertise to make a difference in your family’s life. BIG, in partnership with you, will thoroughly assess the problem, design appropriate intervention, and show you (not just tell you) how the intervention should be applied.

The BIG therapist will work with parents and other family members as a team in order to ensure that the treatment will WORK for you in your family.
