Behavior Analysts utilize scientifically proven strategies and data analysis to develop, implement and adjust non-pharmacological treatment plans for individuals diagnosed with Autism and behavioral disabilities.

 
Project

Caregiver Training

We not only work with our client, we also provide training to the parent, caregiver, teacher, etc. on the intervention plan. We monitor and provide feedback on caregiverís progress in order to set the client up for success outside of the therapy session.

 
Project

Generalization

When a client demonstrates a new skill in one setting or with one person, we have a plan for working with the child so that the newly learned skill generalizes to other places or with other individuals that may work our client.

 
Project

Fading

Independence is a key component to behavioral analysis. We develop a plan for fading support for each skill and overall reduction of problematic behaviors as our clients are able to show success for a period of time.
