Telehealth Behavior Consultation Services

Challenging behaviors decrease a teen’s chance of finding and maintaining employment and good grades in school. It is important to understand why these behaviors are occurring and determine if they can impact future professional relationships and opportunities.

Some of these behaviors include; concentrating, staying on task, neglecting others or themselves’ personal care, cursing excessively, breaking or not following rules, and refusing to do expected house chores.

Of course, most teens have some of these behaviors and break the rules from time to time. But when these behaviors are ongoing, cause problems at work and school, or cause you to be concerned, you may need help in addressing them.

Wisconsin promise Telehealth Behavioral Consultation Services addresses problem behaviors through a practical and innovative method – behavioral consultation services over the phone, tablets or desktop computers.
