Psychology

Psychologists are trained to observe people’s behaviour, thoughts and emotions, and how they respond to different situations. Our psychologists give advice and support to families and other professionals and provide individual behaviour management and psychology therapy.

Many of our psychologists have completed specialized training programs, including Applied Behaviour Analysis, the Early Start Denver Model, parenting children with ASD program, and play therapy, to better assist young people with ASD, and their families.

Psychologists can assist with:

  • Autism spectrum disorder diagnosis

  • intellectual assessments and adaptive functioning assessments

  • understanding functions of behaviours

  • developing a behaviour management plan with practical strategies

  • managing anxiety and emotions

  • social skills related to making and keeping friends

  • conversation skills

  • understanding feelings.

We also provide emotional and educational support for families through services such as parent and sibling counselling.
