Behavior Services for Autism (ABA)

What are Behavior Services for Autism at Easter Seals?
The aim of behavior services is to reduce difficult or unpleasant behavior and/or teach complicated skills, depending on the needs of the child.  Behavioral services begin with a behavioral assessment.  The behavioral assessment, which includes direct observation and family/caregiver interviews, will help determine the possible reasons for a child's disruptive behavior and/or level of current skill development.  Individualized treatment strategies will be recommended based on the results of the behavioral assessment.  Strategies may include recommendations of strategies and/or individualized discrete trial programming for skill acquisition.  Family members and caregivers will be trained.

Who provides behavior services?
