Behavior Support Services

A team of Behavior Specialists and assistants develop functional analyses of behavior, and work closely with the support team to develop individualized behavioral supports designed to help reinforce positive and appropriate behaviors while decreasing less adaptive behaviors. The clinicians visit sites throughout the agency to provide support and training to the staff and individuals at those locations. The support plans are goal-based, proactive in nature, and strive to minimize the use of rights restrictions, and/or artificial consequences. Counseling services are provided as needed under the supervision of the consulting psychologist. Crisis management support is available from a staff on call during all non-business hours.

Behavioral approaches have the most evidence for treating Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). They have become widely accepted among educators and healthcare professionals and are used in many schools and treatment clinics. A notable behavioral treatment for people with ASD is called Applies Behavior Analysis. ABA encourages desired behaviors and discourages undesired behaviors to improve a variety of skills.
