Our Clinic Director and direct-care clinicians will meet with you and your child or loved one for an initial intake meeting and functional behavioral assessment (if applicable). During your next visit, we’ll work with you to develop and refine a behavior intervention plan that is individually tailored to your needs. After that, our staff will work with you and your child or loved one to help meet the goals detailed in the intervention plan. About every 2 – 3 months, the Clinic Director will review and update intervention goals.

What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) applies the natural science of human behavior to create behavior solutions for those with autism or other developmental disabilities. Decades of research have shown that ABA interventions are effective in reducing problem behavior and establishing adaptive skills in children, adolescents and adults — both with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.
