Behavioral Services

  • Behaviors we have successfully treated: aggression, noncompliance, screaming, tantrums, running away, toileting issues, inappropriate play, and property destruction...just to name a few! 
  • Locations we have worked include: foster homes, preschools, schools, residential facilities.
  • We work closely with foster parents and the foster child to address the missing skills and behaviors that create challenges in the home, school, or in public.
  • The intensity of services is determined on a case-by-case basis, and APMRT will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your needs are being met.
  • Currently, behavioral services are only available in 10 Alabama counties

Behavioral Services Process

Step 1: Behavioral Observations
Observe and evaluate challenging behavior where it occurs

Step 2: Assessments
Assess when, where and why the behavior occurs 

Step 3: Treatment
Based on assessments, use proven interventions to address the challenging behaviors in a positive and respectful way

  • Treatment examples might include: teaching necessary skills, parent training, behavior plans, etc.



Medication Review Services

  • Medication Review services are for parties interested only in having their foster child's medications reviewed. 
  • A member of APMRT's medical team will review your foster child's medications, along with any other relevant information, and will write a recommendation letter to your child's prescribing physician.
  • Note: no behavioral services are provided.
  • Medication Review Services are available for ALL Alabama counties.

Parent Training

  • We worked with AL-DHR to bring you trainings that can provide you with up to 7.5 continuing education credits! 
  • On our "For Parents" Tab, explore training videos that cover medications your foster child may be taking, strategies to prevent challenging behaviors, and toilet training. 
  • Each video and accompanying quiz you complete takes less than 30 minutes and provides you with 0.5 education units. 
  • We have also created several training documents and resources including a Medication Appointment Checklist and step-by-step instructions for toilet training your foster child. All training documents can also be found on the "For Parents" Tab.
