At Behavior Essentials, we believe in empowering parents. We give parents the tools they need to create behavioral change in their child with autism. Our service starts with an initial behavior assessment, but we don’t stop there. We curate individual behavioral therapy plans, provide training and education, and transition families toward therapy solutions that work.
ABA behavior assessment
We thoroughly assess your child’s strengths and weaknesses and create a unique roadmap for intervention. Working jointly with you, we select the behavior impacting your family most to target
Parent-focused behavior therapy
Through a series of lessons, we teach you all about behavior and autism. You learn specialized terminology, proactive strategies for problem behaviors, and the ABCs of behavioral change
Objective clinical recommendation
Upon completion of our behavioral therapy program, we use multi-factor analysis to determine the appropriate next steps for your family. We support you in finding the right ABA providers and enrolling in the right therapies
You’re an Essential Part of the Team
The Value Parents Bring
Family Expertise. You understand your family’s values, culture, and lifestyle. Which behaviors disrupt the family balance? Which situations present the greatest difficulty?
Child Expertise. Better than anyone else, you understand your child’s sensitivities, preferences, and motivations. What will your child work for? What will he or she avoid? Which strategies have worked before and which have failed?
The Value We Bring
Behavior Expertise. We live by the principles of behavior and believe that understanding what motivates behavior is the key to helping change it. If your child has a problem behavior, we’ve likely observed it in other families. And, most importantly, we know which strategies will help improve it for yours.
Autism Expertise. After 20+ years, we understand the intricacies of autism. We know the communication, social, and behavioral differences that make ASD complex. Our therapists stay up to date on research in the field, remembering that each child with autism is unique.
