Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)
FBA is the first step in obtaining center-based, applied behavior analysis (ABA), social skills, and/or school services. The FBA involves a process that helps us identify the strengths and the weaknesses as well as behavioral barriers displayed by the individual. The techniques we use within the FBA help us understand why our patient engages in certain challenging behaviors (e.g., tantrums, aggression), so we can help with decreasing these behaviors. The assessment process involves an interview, file review, direct observation, data collection, and a thorough assessment of skills to ensure the client's programs are individualized and tailored for them specifically. When we finish the FBA, we can tell what kind of treatment is needed and the intensity of treatment (i.e., how many hours per week) to help with the most significant progress.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
ABA is used to design, implement, and evaluate the environmental modifications necessary to improve any socially significant behaviors. Once we identify the skill deficits and behavior challenges identified through the FBA, we will design a unique ABA program for your child and help them with improving the areas in need. Some examples of programs we may design for your child include: language and communication, attending and social referencing, reduction of behaviors interfering with learning or other inappropriate behaviors, executive functioning skills, cognitive functioning, safety skills, social skills that require more individual attention, play skills, community integration, vocational skills, coping and tolerance skills, and adaptive and self-help skills.
Center-Based/Clinic ABA services
Our ABA services delivered in a clinic-based environment, specialize in helping your child prepare for Kindergarten and/or the typical school/preschool environment by focusing on all skill deficits, behavior challenges, and preschool prerequisites to help them succeed in a larger group environment.
Do you have children who do not listen to you? Do you feel like you need help with improving their challenging behaviors or noncompliance? If so, we can provide you with individualized parent consultation programs. We can help with aiding you in working with your child, perfecting your relationship with your child, and improving your child's challenging behaviors and skills. This program may be useful for parents who are struggling with their children during homework time, need help with strategies to improve on safety skills, need help with improving their compliance at home and/or in the community setting, and others. Parent education is also a large component of our ABA programs designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders or other developmental disabilities. If you have questions in regards to whether this program may be right for you, please contact us.

We will customize the perfect toilet training program that will best work for you and your child!

After conducting a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) in the school setting or when provided with FBA through the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) by the school district, we will use ABA techniques in helping your child with decreasing school challenging behaviors and improving skills that can be worked on in the school's group setting.
