Behaviour assessments can provide helpful information to diagnose challenging behaviours that may be present for a child or adult. These include attentional difficulties, aggression, conduct, and oppositional problems. A behavioural assessment can also identify mood problems such as anxiety and depression, and social problems.
Once the behaviour of concern is identified, the psychologist can work with the parent and child to develop a treatment plan. This may include targets of learning better ways to self regulate and control behaviours, communicate their feelings and cope with their emotions more effectively.
