This course will encourage you to appraise your current service delivery and consider applying behavioral strategies within your practice to empower a child to participate in skilled care. Every child is unique, so this will emphasize treatment of the whole child, maintaining the child-directed approach while maximizing engagement to achieve outcomes. As part of this course, you will differentiate short-term strategies to use in the moment from long-term strategies to make an impact on a child's participation over time. Additionally, part of shaping and changing a child's behaviors involves reflection and introspection into your own biases, beliefs, and perceptions, as these can impact your success with implementation of behavior strategies.

1. Every Child Is Unique

As part of clinical care, we evaluate a child to determine their current level of functioning. Perhaps the child is having trouble communicating? Maybe the child has a developmental delay or a motor impairment? This individuality needs to be considered when intervening to address behaviors.

2. Improving a Child’s Participation

Sometimes during treatment when a child reacts strongly, we need to respond in the moment to regain control. This is advisable in the short term, but to truly impact participation and engagement, we need to focus on long-term behavioral changes. Both time frames for behavioral impact will be compared.

3. The Impact of My Behaviors on the Child

Children each have their own unique attributes that we must consider when providing skilled care. We, as the providers, must also check and consider our own perceptions, beliefs, and biases when working with children.
