What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
Applied behavior analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991).
What We Offer
Our Crisis Center provides treatment to children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities who display difficult behaviors such as noncompliance, tantrums, property destruction, self-injury, aggression, and refusals. The primary focus of the Crisis Center is to train parents and caregivers how to actively manage problem behaviors more effectively.
Our Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program is for children ages 2-6 years old. We offer a full-time schedule for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. This program follows a daily schedule that is designed to give our clients multiple opportunities to work on social skills, working in a group, play skills, and language expansion.
Our adolescent program is for all school-aged individuals that need additional supports in order to be successful in a school or group environment. This is a 1:1 service that are provided in the clinic environment and are used to teach a variety of skills such as communication, language expansion, social skills, self-help and hygiene routines, and participating in group activities.
For our adult program and treatment plans, we work individually with adults with disabilities to overall increase their level of independence. Services will be tailored to the adult and their specific needs across all settings in the home, center-based, workplace, and the community, with a focus on short term and long term goals.
Social skills groups offer an opportunity for individuals to practice their own social skills while interacting with others as well. In small group settings, we provide our patients the opportunity to develop conversation skills, make friends, solve problems, understand the perspectives of others, and expand other communication skills.
Working directly with us in our center, we have a professional individual who is not only a Licensed Professional Counselor but is also a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and Certified Brain Injury Specialist. She takes an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, and solution focused therapy to meet the individual needs of each patient.
