Behaviour Therapy Assistants

It is difficult to begin a process of recovery following an accident that changes all that is normal to you.  The most difficult changes are often those that cannot be seen physically, but manifest through negative or maladaptive behaviours.   These behaviours can be some of the most significant barriers to the successful implementation of a rehabilitation team’s programming.  Anchor can help you steer through the complex process of addressing the difficulties the individual and their families face day to day.

Under the direction of regulated health care professionals, Anchor’s behaviour therapy assistants (BTA) support treatment teams and legal professionals through the tracking, monitoring, managing, and implementation of behaviour programs for individuals with complex behavioural needs. All Anchors’ behaviour therapy assistants have extensive background in behaviour management and treatment, as well as over 6 years’ experience working with clients with higher level behavioural difficulties.

 

The role of the behaviour therapy assistants is essential to ensuring that a clear baseline of behavioural difficulties is documented for the treating healthcare professional.   Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Behavioural Therapists and Social Workers use this objective data to build a long-term behaviour support program that will provide the most advantageous outcomes for managing and/or treating an individual's

behavioural difficulties. 

Expertise

  • Anchor’s expertise in creating baseline documentation for healthcare professionals falls in its' clear and concise documentation and reporting. ​

  • Specific tasks of the BTA begin with the following:

    • Identification of target behaviours

    • Determining antecedents

    • Assist in determining the function of negative or maladaptive behaviours

    • Tracking behaviour via comprehensive behaviour tracking sheets.  

Observation & Data

  • Using the BTA’s objective observations and data, the treatment team is able to build a comprehensive plan.  Each BTA is then able to monitor and report on the progress towards the goals defined in these treatment plans. Below is a brief synopsis of the specific function of the BTA.  This role is critical in providing the necessary information so as to ensure the individual plans are appropriate and can be modified as required.

  • Implementing interaction guidelines and following     reinforcement schedules

  • Tracking client’s progress (tracking sheets, data           collection)

  • Implementing complex behaviour programing and.     interaction guidelines

  • Replacement skill training
