"Supporting a person requires us to get to know the person as a complicated human being influenced by a complex personal history"
The Behavior Management Department provides additional supports to individuals who have complex behavioral support needs, and their staff. In providing additional behaviour supports, it is the role of the Behaviour Management Department's to identify why the behavior is happening, and develop strategies that will help reduce, change or eliminate the behaviour of concern.

Incident Reports are forms that employees fill out when something out of the ordinary happens. Sometimes Incident Reports are filled out because of an accident, such as scraping a knee, cutting a finger, or slipping in the bathtub. Other times an Incident Report might be filled out because someone was yelling and swearing, throwing things, hitting, or because they couldn’t be found. Whatever the reason for filling out an Incident Report, it’s important that they’re filled out correctly.
Incident Reports themselves can be intimidating. They are a two page document that expects the writer to set aside their feelings and objectively
write down what happened. This is called "objective writing". Objective writing uses only facts to record what was seen, and by whom. If you have question about how to fill out Incident Reports correctly, or what it means to write objectively, check out our videos on "Incident Reports" (left) and "Objective Writing" (right) to answer your questions.
