Behavior Analysis & Assistant: 

Our behavior analysts engage in collaboration, individualized problem-solving process to design and implement strategies that are right for our clients, their families, and the professionals assisting them.  First, we identify behaviors of concern and goals to enhance the clients' and families quality of life.  Second, we gather and analyze information to understand patterns influencing the client's behavior.  Third, we work with the caregivers to design comprehensive plans that fit within natural routines and can be used by the individuals who care for the client. These plans include strategies for:  

  • preventing problems by rearranging aspects of the environment
  • teaching skills to replace challenging behaviors and build independence (example: communication, functional daily living and academic skills)
  • managing consequences to encourage positive behaviors.

Fourth, we provide direct coaching, feedback, and support for clients and their caregivers to help implement the strategies on their own.  Finally, we track outcomes to ensure that the clients' behavior improves and the goals of the intervention are achieved completely and efficiently.  The overriding goal of our services is to help clients and their caregiver live quality, inclusive lives.
