APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS THERAPY
Behavior analysts do not treat diagnoses, they target behavioral deficits and excesses. Problem behaviors are treated based on their function and are systematically reduced while more adaptive replacement behaviors are promoted. However, behavioral therapy is an evidence-based treatment for patients with a wide range of cognitive, behavioral and developmental disorders.
HOW TO BEGIN THERAPY
First, Dr. Jacob will invite you to tour our facility and get a feel for what we do here and if we are the proper fit for your child. In a quick consultation, he will ask about your concerns and some of the symptoms your child has been experiencing. If you both decide to move forward with treatment here at SPBS, we will set up an assessment tailored to your child’s individual needs so that we can establish a baseline for where their current strengths and weaknesses lie. From there, our doctoral staff will create a unique plan to target problem behaviors and care for your child.
