I am Dolly Bhargava. I have completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Speech Pathology from the University of Sydney, a Master of Special Education from the University of Newcastle, and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Upon graduation I began my career working at a number of support agencies including the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care NSW, the Royal Institute for the Deaf and Blind Children of NSW, Department of Justice WA, Neurosciences Unit, Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (Alzheimer’s Association of Western Australia), ACTIV foundation of WA and the Autism Association of Western Australia. I was also privileged to be mentored by Ylana Bloom (Autism Central – Speech Pathologist) for a number of years. Ylana Bloom and I co-authored a number of books that were based on Ylana Bloom’s invaluable insights and extensive experience of working with individuals with disabilities.
Midway through my career I realised my passion was in supporting children, adolescents and adults with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD). I started working extensively with individuals with EBD in a variety of settings such as family homes, childcare centres, preschool, schools, respite care, post school options, employment services and corrective services.
Based on the practical wisdom I have gathered from working with individuals with EBD, their families, educators and professionals over the last 21 years I founded Behaviour Help.
I hope the Behaviour Help resources and services EDUCATE - EMPOWER - ENABLE you with the knowledge, skills and tools to help the individual you support learn positive ways of behaving and managing their emotions.
