A Behavior Assessment Is A Good Starting Point

A Behavior Assessment Is A Good Starting Point

Parents who suddenly find they have a child with Behavior problems often do not know where to start. They know that there is an issue but they may not pinpoint the root cause. Child Behavior Center of Poinciana Florida can help.

Pediatricians can be a great help in pinpointing certain issues. For example, a hearing or vision test can determine if a child’s behavior can be completely or partially addressed with hearing aids or eyeglasses. However, usually, a referral is given to a neurologist to rule out neurological issues first, who decides if they should be referred to another specialist, or what types of therapies best serve the child’s needs.

Various therapies can be used, and this is where a Behavior Assessment from a Trained Behavior Analyst comes into play.
