Crisis Center & Texas Education Agency Certification

Behavior Network is a Texas Education Agency (TEA) approved non-public school. As a result, the Crisis Center, in collaboration with the local authority and school districts provides treatment to individuals of all ages with severe challenging behaviors such as: verbal and physical aggression, self-injury, property destruction and work refusal. The primary focus of this program is to conduct a functional analysis and effectively treat challenging behavior utilizing ABA procedures. Once the behaviors are managed at a safe level, we train parents, caregivers and teachers how to successfully manage these behaviors by following the developed behavior intervention plan. This program heavily relies upon involvement of all caregivers to actively participate with the client as they will be implementing the prescribed treatment procedures and tracking the client’s progress. We require all caregivers living in the home with our clients to complete Safety-Care for Families™ training which is done by one of our BCBA’s.
