BAM Program | The Behaviour Assessment and Management Program
The BAM program provides families with a comprehensive assessment and the development of a Behaviour Management Plan for a child with complex and/or challenging behaviours. The assessment will be conducted over a number of visits, usually including the home and any other locations relevant, including school, respite, or community location.
The Behaviour Management Plan will provide a detailed plan of strategies and interventions that are to be implemented by parents, families and carers of the child.
This Behaviour Management Plan can then be implemented with the help of the Intensive Family Support Services team and other family supports, if necessary.
This program provides families and Intensive Family Support Services teams with the option to have specialised assessment and planning provided to most appropriately manage complex and/or challenging behaviours in children with or without special needs.
Specifically, families will receive:
- In-home or community-based assessment and observation
- Comprehensive Behaviour Management Plan
