Problem Behaviors

Problem Behavior

Reinforcement Unlimited, LLC provides consultation on how to deal with behaviors that pose a problem, are disruptive, dangerous, or simply inappropriate. We routinely consult to parents, schools, and agencies. Our interventions are designed to focus on teaching alternative positive replacement behaviors whenever possible. The overall goal of our consultation is the reduction of targeted behaviors of concern.

All our interventions are based on your needs and our analysis of the function served by the behavior. Understanding the function of a behavior allows us to alter how the child gets their needs met and to increase appropriate behaviors that meet that need at the same time that we are reducing the behavior that brought us into the picture in the first place. At the heart of this process is the Functional Behavioral Assessment.

Problem behaviors are widely acknowledged as the most challenging and stressful issues faced by parents and schools related to special needs children. In special needs children problem behaviors are less likely to spontaneously disappear than in typically developing peers. Early intervention utilizing evaluation techniques included in the FBA process are essential in preventing such behaviors from moving beyond the level exhibited by typical peers. Research is clear that interventions that do not focus on positive replacement behaviors for problem behavior will be unsuccessful in the long-term elimination of such problem behaviors.

What Our Families are Saying

"Please accept this note as our sincere appreciation to the both of you for the time you spent with us and our son recently with regard to his diagnostic evaluation. Throughout the process, we were very pleased with your thoroughness, willingness to answer our questions, and ability to direct us to appropriate resources. In addition, you were able to provide a comfortable, non-threatening environment for our son, enabling you to observe him without anxiety on his part - for that we are very thankful!"

Mother of 9 a Year Old, Metro Atlanta

"I can highly recommend Dr. Robert Montgomery who is not only a licensed psychologist but also a BCBA. He and his wife did a thorough evaluation that helped us get great services at school. The eval. was covered by my insurance and medicaid. I paid for him to come to my daughter's eligibility meeting and it was worth every penny and then some. His company is located in Woodstock and is called Reinforcement Unlimited, LLC."

"I really find that your comments are invaluable in assisting me with learning the appropriate ways to parent and understanding his behaviors. Thank you so much for all you do and the incredible report you provided us with for [our son] - the school psychologist was very impressed with the amount of testing results you provided and made many comments regarding the thoroughness of your evaluation and report."
