The Association of Behavior Consultants is committed to providing effective and caring education for all children with learning disabilities. Our goal is to increase the capacity of the child to engage in socially-significant behaviors, however, education and growth is often stunted due to various problematic behaviors that some children exhibit.
Many of the children we work with engage in severe behaviors which in many cases prevent them from accessing the least restrictive environments, learning new concepts, or developing and maintaining meaningful relationships. Through empirically-driven behavioral-change strategies, we attempt to identify the root causes of problem behaviors and use that knowledge to manage the behavior.
Once problem behaviors are properly managed, opportunities to teach become increasingly available and through play, table activities and functional routines, our trained staff is able to increase skills related to the core deficits of Autism.
