The Balance Program is a proactive approach to teaching young children important communication and coping skills before severe problem behavior has had a chance to become routine. It is manualized in handbooks for professionals and for parents, and it can be implemented by parents, in the home with intermittent support from a trained professional.
The best place to start is with our on-demand course. From there, we offer videoconference-based consultations with the primary objective of supporting clinicians as they support implementers (parents, caregivers, RBTs, etc.) through the program.
The content and duration of the distance consultation is flexible and can be tailored to each professional’s needs. Typically, it consists of a live videoconference Q & A following the on-demand course; assistance preparing for implementation with specific clients; and weekly meetings for on-going assistance with implementation across the program lessons.
