Behavior intervention programs aim to target undesirable behaviors and replace them with more appropriate behaviors. Each unique program is based upon assessment data. A specific intervention program is designed for the individual learner after careful observation of the learner in a variety of different environments. Interviews with caregivers, other service providers, and focused interaction with the learner are important pieces in the creation of a specific set of behavior goals. Upon receiving the assessment results, a clinician will consult with you and help guide you to the right treatment program(s) for your child.
Implementation of the Intervention program mandates ongoing caregiver involvement and program oversight, including competency-based training, data collection, data review and data based program modification. Caregivers are strongly encouraged to participate in trainings specific to their learner’s program. In some circumstances caregivers will be trained to implement treatment programs; in more complex situations direct clinical service is recommended.
