Our Services

At BM Behavioral Center, we provide a wide range of ABA therapy services and treatments for autism that ensure your child receives the best care. In addition to providing comprehensive support and assistance throughout the diagnostic process and therapy, we ensure your family remains actively involved in the treatment process.

Mental Health Diagnostic Evaluation

Our ABA therapists guide the testing and diagnostic process. We can provide recommendations of the best doctors available to test and diagnose your child accurately. Once your child has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by a pediatrician, our ABA therapists can recommend an effective treatment for autism.

ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA therapy is the leading treatment for autism. Our ABA behavior technicians specifically develop a therapy plan to fit your child’s needs. Depending on your child's strengths and weaknesses, different strategies may be used to encourage desired behaviors through positive reinforcement. Goals include developing social or communication skills.

Mental Health Service Plan Development

An important element of ABA is for parents or guardians to understand every step of their child’s treatment. Moreover, we inform parents of the reasons behind this therapy and the goals we aim to achieve.

Our ABA therapists will work with you to identify key areas to focus on in your child’s therapy sessions.

Family Home Care Training

Your family must get involved in your child's treatment for positive results in ABA therapy. Another key component of Applied Behavioral Analysis is ensuring your child has the best possible environment at home. Our ABA behavior technicians will work with you to provide a setting where they can continue developing and improving.

Treatment Supervision and Progress Updates

An essential element of ABA therapy is constant treatment supervision and progress updates. Our ABA therapists track and measure your child’s progress toward goals by collecting data in each session. The ABA therapist will periodically meet with the ABA program supervisors and your family to discuss your child's progress.

FAQs About ABA Therapy

What Is ABA Therapy?

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is the leading treatment for autism. An ABA program teaches skills that can be used in day-to-day life. Through 1-on-therapy sessions, people with ASD can improve their social skills, function better, and become more independent. Furthermore, ABA can decrease behavioral issues such as aggression.

What Are the Principles of Applied Behavior Analysis?
  1. Environmental factors influence behaviors.
  2. Consequences can strengthen or weaken behaviors.
  3. Positive consequences, rather than negative ones, are more effective in changing behavior.
  4. Behaviors must be reinforced or disciplined to make socially significant changes.
Is ABA a Good Treatment?

The American Psychological Association (APA) considers Applied Behavioral Analysis an evidence-based practice. This means the ABA approach has been scientifically tested and proven effective. ABA is considered a leading treatment for autism.

How Does Applied Behavior Analysis Work?

A person is more likely to repeat an action when it is followed by something they appreciate (a reward). This eventually promotes constructive behavior modification. The therapist first determines the goal behavior. The individual receives a reward when they apply the behavior or skill correctly.
