At Behavioral Learning Center we utilize the principles and procedures of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to affect behavior change which results in improvement for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, language and developmental delays. Quality ABA treatment is not a standardized protocol implemented the same across all learners, ABA assessment and treatment requires systematic assessment and error analysis on an individualized basis.

We specialize in the analysis and treatment of Verbal Behavior deficits. By applying behavior analytic principles and procedures using verbal operants (Skinner, 1957) as a unit of measure, we are able to provide systematic and individualized assessment and treatment of language for each learner.

Verbal behavior programming consists of errorless teaching procedures, behavioral shaping, transfer of stimulus control, positive reinforcement, procedures for promotion of generalization, as well as, on-going assessment of problem behavior based upon function. Programming for each learner is individualized and includes intensive teaching using Discrete Trial Training (DTT) and Natural Environment Teaching (NET).
