A Collaborative Approach

More often than not we fear what we do not understand and we also lose that fear when we decide to tackle the challenge before us head on. Some challenges require help and that is precisely what we are here for. Our aim as an organization is focused on helping children on the autism spectrum reach their potential by tapping into their strengths, working on weaknesses  and building a support structure that consists of therapists, educators, parents and community, all working in unison to provide the highest quality of treatment, advocacy, behavioral improvement and social integration.

Our employees are trained in various areas of behavioral therapy including:

  • ABA Therapy– Applied Behavioral Analysis is an evidence-based scientific discipline designed to increase behaviors that encourage social interaction, independence, language and communication skills while decreasing behaviors that may be harmful or impede the learning experience of a child.
  •  Speech Therapy – children on the Autism Spectrum may present difficulty expressing and communicating daily wants and needs, for this reason our speech services focus on language development and social communication with an aim on functional utilization of these skill.
  • Parent Training– As a part of our collaborative approach to treatment we at The Behavioral Effect encourage parents to become active participants of a child’s treatment by attending parent training sessions with the objective of familiarization, progress and updates, concerning the child’s performance related to the program. Parent training meetings also serve as an opportunity for a parent to express concerns, highlight behavioral patterns that may be arise in the home setting and for our therapists and behavioral analysts a chance to make sure behaviors are being generalized and transferred from the clinical setting over to the home and community.

 

Early Intervention

Perhaps one of the most crucial factors in the maintenance of any behavior is the length of time and comfort a person develops engaging in a behavior. Therefore, it is important to seek behavioral treatment as early as possible so that a behavioral plan can be formulated and set in motion at an early stage in the behavior development.

While you may feel alone and isolated having a child who has autism, know we at The Behavioral Effect are here to help you. We want to remove the communication barriers between you and your child and help create a stronger bond. Please do not hesitate to contact our office at (956) 627-4413 to learn more about our services!
