Creating meaningful change in the lives of individuals with autism and developmental disabilities
Due to uneven patterns of development, children with autism and developmental disabilities often have widely varying levels of functioning across different skills areas. Qualified assessment and intensive intervention that is individualized to each child’s needs are necessary to:
Increase behaviors such as communication, social skills, and play skills
Decrease challenging behavior such as self-injury, aggression towards others, and screaming
Teach these skills across settings and caregivers
Ongoing assessment and data taken before and during treatment are used to inform decision making and treatment direction, to ensure that what we are doing is working and that the best possible therapy is being provided for your child. Skills are taught across caregivers and environments to ensure consistency and the success of therapy in all settings.
In addition to regular therapy, we also offer one-time training in specific areas of need, including (but not limited to) toilet training, sleep, and a basic introduction to ABA.
Harren Behavior Services provides evidence based and effective therapy for children with autism and developmental disabilities using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.
We strive to provide at least some direct therapy on all cases by Board Certified Behavior Analysts. (BCBAs) with master's level training in ABA. We also ensure that every case has a higher than average amount of supervision by a BCBA. Having a BCBA administer all aspects of therapy means that your child's therapy is conducted by a professional with multiple years of education and training, as well as certification in the field. Dependent on client need, therapy may also be provided by a high quality and experienced behavior technician along with direct service by a BCBA. Therapy is conducted by the therapists wherever the need is greatest, whether that is in the home, school, or community.
