However, some patients such as those receiving only social skills services may get Behavior Consulting only by the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).

What does it do for me?

Behavior Consulting provides the parent training and support that helps achieves the best outcomes for your child. It can also help provide training and support to other family members or providers who work directly with your child as well.

Is it just for problematic behavior?

No, in fact we often provide behavior consulting for creating many goals such as language, daily living skills, and social skills that we want to see increase. It can be for problematic behavior as well, but also include updating progress, parent training, staff training, and so much more.

How can it help with these areas of concern?

Toilet Training– Behavior Consulting can create an individualized plan and provide the training and support to you and/or the Registered Behavior Technician working with your child as well. It is provided throughout the process to ensure toileting success and proven outcomes.

 

Eating– Behavior consulting is provided to help with picky eaters and those resistant to eating a variety of foods or drinking a variety of beverages. This can be essential for many children, especially those who are physically suffering from their lack of nutrition.

 

Auditory sensitivity- Being sensitive to sounds can be difficult for some children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and often lead to problematic behaviors. Rather than avoiding sounds or placing things such as noise cancelling headphones on a child, we work systematically to decrease and eliminate their aversion to these sounds through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services. We carry over these techniques to you and empower you and your child.

 

Sleeping- Lack of sleep or issues regarding sleep can be frustrating and affect children in so many ways including leading to an increase in problematic behaviors. We work with you and even your child’s doctor to put a program in place that gets them into a sleep pattern while also improving their nightly routine and your peace of mind.

 

Haircutting- Getting a haircut can be an outright challenge in itself. We are here to help and work with you to get your child to participate in and tolerate haircuts including the scissors and trimmers that may be causing these issues.

Eating

For some children with autism includes having a very limited diet and may not eat a healthy variety of items within their diets. Using a well established program, we work with parents to ensure your child eats a variety of foods and drinks including those healthier alternatives.

Sleeping

Issues are not uncommon for children with autism. These can poorly affect their moods and ability to be successful during the day. In addition, it can create difficulties for others including parents to sleep since the child may often be waking up. Utilizing a well established program, we work with parents to establish and maintain proper sleeping patterns for children.

Sensitivity to Auditory

Sounds can be difficult for some children with autism. Loud and unexpected sounds can cause discomfort and even create problematic behaviors to occur. These sounds like blow dryers, alarms, whistles, speakers, trains, etc… can be like nails on a chalkboard to many children with autism. Utilizing reinforcement and small steps, we are able to decrease and eliminate the resistance to these sounds so that children can tolerate them.

Parent Training

Can be difficult for many families of children with Autism due to their schedules and/or the limited availability of most providers. At ABA Services, we can schedule sessions convenient to your schedule. We use a nationally recognized parent training system that builds upon concepts, techniques, topics and other customized related topics. Contact us today to learn more

Although every child is different and so are their needs, we offer a variety of other specialized programs such as children getting haircuts, trimming their nails, etc. We strive to make each child able to receive these specialized programs so that they can be successful in the world.
