The success of any therapy session is closely connected to the ability of the clinician to effectively manage students’ engagement and behavior.

Of the many questions that clinicians have asked, the one question that keeps coming up is: How do we serve our students that have limited engagement, complex needs, behavior issues, etc? The answer is that we need a new model of services that truly supports the whole student and their families. Clinicians need this critical information now in order to provide effective therapy services.
