Utilizes the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to increase functional skills. All goals will be individualized to meet the child's needs. The teaching will be spent both directly with the child and with the family/caregivers with the long-term goal of becoming independent for all skills. An evaluation will take place in order to determine the child’s baseline skills before the programming will begin. This may include but is not limited to the following areas:
BU will work directly with the family in order to teach how to change the behavior of their child. BCBA will evaluate why behaviors are occurring and will formulate a training program in order to teach the family how to manage behaviors while at home and in the community. An evaluation will take place prior to beginning family training and coaching in order to see how the family responds to the child’s behavior and to gather more information about why the behavior is occurring.
BU will review the child’s current school program, placement, and IEP and will make recommendations in order to advocate for the child’s needs. There will be a consultation with the family, school observation, attendance in IEP meetings, and school consultations.
BU will develop a behavior plan either for the home/community environment or for the school environment in order to see a change in the child’s target behavior. An FBA and evaluation will take place first in order to gather the information needed to put a behavior plan in place. Once the plan has been written, the BCBA will review the plan with the family and/or school team.
Trainings will be developed and presented in order to educate and train different school providers in the areas of Autism, ABA, Behaviors, and Functional Skills. Can be public and private school staff, daycares, before/after school programs, camp staff, extracurricular staff, etc. Trainings can be developed based on the need of the organization.
BU will provide BCBA Supervision hours required by the BACB in order to sit for the exam
BU will focus on teaching the child and the family how to use functional skills in the community settings. Such as walking in stores, eating at restaurants, going to birthday parties and family parties, joining a gymnastics class, religious school, etc. BCBA will utilize the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to work on teaching the child to enjoy and be successful in the community.
Social skills groups will be developed according to the child’s age, abilities and interests and will take place either alternating homes, playgrounds, or other community settings. The focus of the group is to build friendships, work on social skills in a functional and natural way, all while having fun!

Play dates can either be arranged by the family or will be paired up with other children by BU in order to increase more socialization opportunities for each child. BCBA will work with 1-2 other peers to teach the children how to have a play date. Play dates will take place either at alternating homes, playgrounds, or other community settings.
For older children, "hang outs" can be arranged to work on social skills out in the community. Some community settings could be eating at restaurants, bowling, mini golf, amusement parks, etc.
