The Behavioural Support Service offers support, advice, strategies and coaching to the parents of children in the area of behaviour and autism. This is a consultative service that works with children up to 12 years of age depending on the level of support they require. As each child, and therefore each case is different, an initial consultation is required to ascertain if the service can be of benefit to any individual child.
You can contact Alma via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 4377052
Please Note: This is a waitlisted service and availability is dependent on workload at the time of referral.
