Results From a Team Approach to Behavior Challenges
Riverfront has specially trained professionals with extensive experience helping people with disabilities. Our team has served thousands of families, including hundreds of individuals living with autism-spectrum disorders.
Behavior challenges like aggression, self-injury and tantrums can diminish the quality of life for the people who engage in them and for their families, peers and caregivers. Because of the behaviors, these individuals face unnecessary and unwanted obstacles to living a full and rewarding life. People with behavior challenges have difficulty finding and maintaining employment and care providers.
There is help. Riverfront’s Behavioral Services offers specialized expertise to address both the general and specific behavioral needs of individuals, and provides tools for the caregivers and agencies that serve them.
Help starts with a consultation session including all those involved with the care and services of the individual: families and guardians, case workers, agency service providers and others.
After your initial consultation, a Riverfront Behavioral Specialist will provide recommendations based on needs identified at the consultation.
