Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) are highly trained, licensed, driven individuals committed to the success of their learners. BCBA’s are responsible for the assessment and development of an individualized treatment plan and the continuous management and modification of treatment. As a team, BCBA’s and Behavior Therapists (BT’s) work together in implementing treatment.
Behavior Therapists (BT’s) provide direct service to the client. BT’s are responsible for the direct implementation of the devised treatment by BCBA’s. Our Behavior Therapists hold a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree in a related field. Our Behavior Therapists will also receive training and complete a competency assessment at its conclusion.
Our learners typically range from ages 3 to 21.
Our services include, but are not limited to, the following diagnoses:
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) sessions within the home most commonly last between two to three hours, however the duration of a session can vary dependent on the age, schedule, and individual needs of the learner. Initially, the Behavior Therapist begins by “pairing” with the learner. Pairing is a common term in Applied Behavior Analysis used to explain the process of rapport building with the learner.
A preference assessment will also be completed by the Behavior Therapist to establish preferred, motivating items which will work as reinforcers for appropriate behavior and task completion. Throughout the session, various breaks will be given where the learner can engage in activities both individually and with the Behavior Therapist. During the session, the Behavior Therapist will also take data on the learners responses to each individual program. The session will conclude with a written summary of the session.
