I, Dawn Allen agree to provide the behaviour consultation/programme in relation to behaviours described in the behaviour questionnaire, the goal being to teach the client how to learn about and teach good practice and skills.

The client understands that he/she and members of the household must follow Dawn Allen’s guidance without modification, work within the guidance as recommended/advised and practice the advice given.
