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.
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.
We offer counseling treatment to children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities through an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, and solution focused therapy. We strive to meet the individual needs of each patient in a way that best suits them to build confidence to handle any change or situation, as well as striving to further their level of independence.
Through our In-Home ABA services, your child can act natural in their home environment. This allows our behavior therapists to treat your child in the moment as challenging behaviors arise. We come into your home setting to work on an individual basis by teaching your child new behaviors and helping to provide you with the right resources and tools to use as a parent, as well as sibling training.
As individuals advance into adulthood, we help to aid them in preparing for greater independence in life by personal hygiene and health activities on to teaching them job skills and managing personal finances. In addition, we focus on decreasing challenging behaviors that may inhibit a person from entering other social activities.
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.
