Full Spectrum Applied Behavior Assessments

To identify the root causes of challenging behaviors in children or adolescents on the autism spectrum, we use language and behavior assessments. This well-established approach has been demonstrated effective by empirical research and extensive experience. Based on the information from these assessments, our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) will select appropriate interventions and design an individualized treatment plan that works for both your child and your schedule. Our consultants will also help you implement the treatment plan.

We set up a feedback loop based on ongoing data evaluation and periodic assessments, so that your child’s plan can be modified to ensure the intervention is maximally effective. This is particularly important in cases where a child does not show progress in any of the plan’s elements.

Treatment plan elements may include, but are not limited to:
