My teenage son had severely dysregulated behaviors resulting from his neurological, developmental disability. Medications, traditional counseling, and behavior management techniques had not helped. His behavior grew so increasingly out of control that I was running out of hope. Jamie, at TELL Enterprises, was recommended to me by another parent in our special needs community. I was told that Jamie specialized in behavioral support training with children, teens and adults with diverse levels of physical, emotional, intellectual and developmental abilities.
Jamie came to our home and conducted a thorough behavioral assessment with my son and our whole family. She visited our home twice weekly for intensive training with my son and our entire family in order to help us all learn more effective ways of responding to stress and challenging behaviors instead of depending on traditional punitive behavior management techniques.
Jamie also met with all of my son’s school teachers, caregivers, case managers, and counselors in order to train everyone on my son’s Behavioral Support Plan. She was able to explain to everyone the unique learning and information processing challenges faced by my son. As everyone increased their usage of effective communication while following a consistent and supportive plan, my son was able to decrease his aggressive behavior and increase his ability to cope with stress and lead a more peaceful life.
Jamie was able to bring order to an out of control situation while maintaining empathy, warmth, and unconditional support for my son and family. She helped advocate for my son at school meetings and she was instrumental in helping my son access community resources he needed to assist with ongoing services. Because of Jamie’s help, my son is able to live a healthier, safer, more independent life. Jamie truly cares about the individuals and families she helps. I would highly recommend Jamie’s BCBA services to anyone seeking answers for a special loved one’s behavioral needs.
