Behavior Reduction

A child's behaviors of concern can affect their social interactions and overall functioning. In order to reduce undesired behaviors, one of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) will assess your child to understand why the behaviors are occurring in the first place. Identifying the cause of the undesired behavior(s) is essential for us to develop the most effective treatment plan for your child. Treatment plans are designed to reduce the problem behaviors and increase desirable behaviors. Our interventions are based on caregivers’ needs and the results of the function of behavior assessment (FBA). The BCBA will work with you to implement the treatment strategies into your home and community settings. 


Common examples of problem behaviors include but are not limited to:


-Tantrums

-Agressive behaviors (i.e. - hitting, biting, pushing)

-Self-injurious behaviors

-Trouble with transitions

-Non-compliance 

-Difficulty waiting or accepting “no”

-PICA (eating non-food items)

-Food refusal/ Picky eating

-Toilet training

-Elopement or escape
