Behavioural Therapy

At Headstart we offer individualized and tailored parenting assistance that promotes taking control of children’s behavioural problems.

Headstart aims to empower parents by teaching strategies that are effective in managing difficult behaviours whilst promoting good behaviour and self-esteem. Each individualized program focusses on:

  • Empowering children to exert control over their own behaviour and emotions;
  • Building children's self-esteem and independence;
  • Develop parent's confidence to respond effectively to their children's behaviours;
  • Strengthen the relationship between parent/caregiver and child.

Headstart offers school visits to assist educators in managing difficult behaviours experienced within the school environment. Our staff will collaborate with teachers to develop positive behavioural strategies that may be of concern and/or interfering with a child’s ability to participate effectively at school.
