Behavioral Therapy

Is your child unable to focus? Does your child struggle with communication or act out? Has your child or teen already been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder or an attention disorder?

Behavior is communication. We can help.

Get Started

What is Behavioral Therapy ?

Behavioral therapy focuses on helping children/teens develop healthier behaviors and cope with various challenges they may be facing. Using principles of learning, our therapists help address issues like disruptive behavior, attention difficulties, anxiety, and social skills deficits – always with an emphasis on compassion, caring and parent collaboration.


Using behavioral therapy, we identify behaviors, both desirable and undesirable.


We design a program that will teach and motivate your child to learn new skills and use more appropriate behaviors.


The goal is to reduce frustrations, improve functional communication and to enhance social engagement.

Care That Evolves With Your Child

Learn More About Our Approach

Our skilled board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs) use strategies based on a thorough assessment of the needs and behaviors of your child or teen. They rely on ongoing data collection to monitor progress and to measure development across five key areas (physical, adaptive behavior, social-emotional, cognitive and communication). 

This data, combined with child/teen feedback, will inform any needed treatment modifications.

Functional and Academic Skill Training

In addition to behavioral therapy, we offer individually designed instruction of target skills to increase community access.

This therapy is appropriate for children who need to increase independence and positive social interaction, and build functional skills, organization and completion strategies, including children with ADHD and learning disabilities.

Why Teletherapy Works

Why Teletherapy?

Through teletherapy, therapists can observe a child in their natural environment, where most problems and behaviors occur. Parents can also be coached on strategies to use at home when behaviors occur.

A review of studies also showed that telehealth is an effective method to teach autism interventions, helping to improve outcomes like reducing challenging behavior and improving communication skills.

“I often have parents who report behaviors that occur at home that I don’t observe in sessions. Generally reactivity is an issue and the child will refrain from engaging in the reported behavior when other people are present. With teletherapy, I am able to “hide” behind the screen and easily observe the behavior(s) in action, which then allows me to support the parents with appropriate interventions.”
