The Karitane kids behaviour clinic offers families a variety of evidence-based behavioural treatment strategies to support families with children 3 - 5 years of age with emotional and behavioural challenges. This early intervention service is goal oriented and outcome driven. Treatment strategies are designed to target individual challenges, promote children’s ongoing resilience, and prepare families with a toolbox of strategies to better understand and strengthen healthy development.

- Verbal and physical aggression
