Behavior Support Services

Linda & Chandler

The Behavior Support Services at Easterseals Capper Foundation is committed to being a community leader in improving quality of life for children and families living with autism and other disabilities through training, communication, and collaboration.

Training and consultation is provided for parents and other caregivers by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Our BCBA will work with each family to provide strategies and training on priority areas of concern. Families will learn how to carry out those strategies with their child in their home and community settings. Click here to meet our BCBA.

Our emphasis is to work with parents and caregivers on engaging children through interactions, activities and materials that are meaningful, motivating and naturally rewarding whenever possible. Generalization to everyday interactions and activities is the target from the onset of services. Learn more about the focus of services here.
