Applied Behavior Analysis
At our treatment center, learning is maximized by utilizing both one-to-one (1:1) and small-group settings. One-to-one offers an opportunity to break down abilities into smaller teachable skills and small-group settings offer opportunities to promote generalization or practice those skills in a more natural environment. This simply means that your child will receive dedicated attention from one of our therapists to develop and work on a certain skill and then will put these newly learned skills to use in a small group environment.
Again, the approach that will benefit your child the most is determined based on their specific needs. Your child is unique, so your child’s treatment plan will be individualized to their specific needs and learning style. We recognize that your child may require coordination of care with other service providers, so we offer the ability to receive multiple therapy types with ease.
Our clinicians work together to ensure all areas of need are identified and targeted through comprehensive treatment planning.

Our on point programming will utilize the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to provide an understanding of how to treat. When a child is taught an appropriate way to communicate their wants and needs (such as, using words to request an item or a visual that represents what they want), they will no longer need to engage in yelling or throwing a tantrum.

Assessments & Tools
M-CAT / CARS
Screening gauges risk for autism and, when appropriate, recommends when parents should seek further testing and evaluation. A positive screening result is not a diagnosis and does not indicate the presence of autism. For children eventually diagnosed with autism, early detection enables more effective treatment.
A comprehensive diagnostic evaluation for autism relies on observing and measuring behavioral characteristics and is typically conducted by a licensed clinician. A pediatrician or primary care provider can refer the child and family to a licensed specialist. Once a formal diagnosis is determined, the next step in a comprehensive assessment of what treatment services may be indicated. At BHCS to perform diagnostic procedures a licensed clinician is a trained expert in diagnostics.
Provides a snapshot of behavioral and emotional functioning, quickly identifying children and adolescents aged 3 to 18 years who might be in need of additional support.
Some interactions are intended to offer a high level of structure for the participant, while others are intended to provide less structure. Interactions and the participant’s responses are then coded in a standardized manner. An algorithm, which sums the scores of coded items, yields a classification indicative of autism.
Skilled Based Assessments
