Heart & Hands


"People do not engage in self-injury[or]aggression solely because they have developmental disabilities.


There is logic to their behaviour, and functional assessment is an attempt to understand that logic"

O’Neill, (1997)


"A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying"



B. F. Skinner
