Ballsbridge’s Wellness Program has the objective to increase self management in developing coping skills necessary to improve health, or interpersonal skills needed to facilitate access to recreational activities. This may include building the intricate social and communication skills required in successful group participation of sports activities or coping with major changes in daily routine made towards healthier living.
Social and communication skills taught in support of participation in sports activities, may include conflict resolution, problem solving, team building and good sportsmanship. Coping skills may include learning to wait for a delayed access to a tangible that has been easily accessible in the past.
Identifying disruptive behaviors, related contextual variables that maintain them, defining functionally equivalent replacement goals, designing individualized behavior intervention and teaching programs – all are completed through application of the techniques of applied behavior analysis.
