Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program

Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program currently provides services to children, adolescents, and adults in their homes, schools, and the community. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts and assistant Behavior Analysts (BCBA/BCaBA) perform a comprehensive assessment to evaluate a learner’s current skill levels and any challenging behavior that might impede independence or success across environments. A treatment plan is then developed that targets acquisition of skills that will improve a learner’s successful integration into his/her community, as well as reduce socially inappropriate or impeding behaviors. Skill acquisition programs can include a focus on communication, functional daily living skills (e.g., personal hygiene, chores, leisure skills, etc.), social skills, and/or community safety. Our BCBA/BCaBA consultants have access to a variety of curricula and assessments, and will choose the one that is the right fit for each learner, which will then be used to develop the individualized treatment plan.

We also offer the services and training of Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) with direct supervision under our BCBAs/BCaBAs. RBTs are highly skilled direct instructors, proficient in verbal behavior, errorless teaching, effectively fading prompts, functional communication, discrete trial/structured teaching, and the use of visual supports, among other things. All staff members are certified in Safety Care de-escalation and crisis management strategies and techniques.
