- Initial Behavior Assessment

What kinds of challenging behavior can Woollard Ipsen Management help with?
We can help with a wide range of concerns, including behaviors involving physical and verbal aggression, elopement, medication refusal, sexually inappropriate behavior such as unwanted touching or unsafe behavior online, stealing, impulsivity and more. We always keep in mind the severity and risk of the individual’s behavior and will collaborate with providers from other disciplines or recommend referrals as needed.
