THE PROGRAMS ARE DEVELOPED BY A BOARD CERTIFIED BEHAVIOR ANALYST (BCBA OR BCABA) AND UTILIZES THE PRINCIPLES OF APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS TO CHANGE BEHAVIORS AND LIVES.
Behavior Matters serves children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), ages 12 months through 18 years. Each child’s treatment program is designed based upon his/her individual needs as determined by assessment. The terminal aim of every child’s program is to “close the gap” between their current skill level and those of their typically developing peers. Behavioral excesses or deficits across multiple domain areas likely contribute to the impairments of functioning. To meet the aim of ‘closing the gap’, a comprehensive, behavioral and education program is necessary.
