Behavioral Programming and Support
Our Behavioral Programming and Support (BPS) department provides comprehensive
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) services
using the most up-to-date best practices in the field of behavior analysis.
What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
ABA is the science of looking at the circumstances surrounding behaviors. By identifying what happens right before and immediately after the behavior, behavior analysts can alter the events to shape or teach replacement behaviors to improve the lives of those being served.

What is Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI)?
This intervention consists of 20-40 hours of intensive 1:1 treatment under the direction of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and for our state funded services by the Division of Developmental Disabilities a master’s level therapist can provide program management under the supervision of a BCBA. The program manager is responsible for creating individualized goals and objectives based on assessment. These programs are implemented by behavior technicians in the home, community, clinic, and activity sites. Collaboration and consistency are very important for a successful EIBI program and therefore families, specialty therapists, and teachers must all work together for the best possible outcome. EIBI has abundant research with respect to its effectiveness for children under the age of 5, specifically those who begin treatment at age two.
Our staff consists of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA), supervisees, and our amazing team of Behavior Technicians (BT) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT).
We utilize a number of different behavioral strategies tailored to each individual client.
Behavioral Programming and Support (BPS) is a field that utilizes evidence-based (research supported) practices. Here are a few peer-reviewed research articles we have referenced on these BPS pages and a few key articles in the field.
