Behavioral concerns can effect each person within a family and can create a high stressful environment. We at MIS, our Licensed Behavior Analysts (BCBA's & BCaBA's) assist by creating specialized programs for behavior reduction while using ABA techniques at home, school and/or out in the community. 

MIS assists families to modify environmental factors and provide parent and/or teacher training to increase appropriate behaviors, while reducing problem behaviors such as aggression, tantrums, property destruction, and noncompliance.

ASSESSMENT. To begin, our licensed Behavior Analysts (BCBA or BCaBA) will complete a thorough behavioral assessment created to determine the function of the clients behavior and the appropriate behaviors we would like to teach and encourage that would assist the clients in their lives. Understanding that all behaviors have a purpose, we assess the clients environment and interactions to determine what the client may receive from engage in unwanted behavior and create a plan to modify these behaviors to more appropriate behaviors.

INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENT PLAN.Based on the assessment completed, an individualized behavioral treatment plan is created to meet the unique needs of the individual and family. Utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a plan is developed to reduce undesirable behaviors and increase appropriate alternative behaviors that will increase the clients quality of life. 

 

TRAINING PARENTS AND OTHER Caregivers. As an integrative team, we believe that families and caregivers are the cornerstone to treatment as they are often with the client longer than we are as professionals. We provide unique support and training to parents and other caregivers in order to provide them with the confidence needed to implement treatment programs created. As the therapist continues to learn the child (adolescent), we provide training to caregivers on what to do in specific and general situations. We value the team approach and working directly with parents in order to ensure that the client learns how to respond with multiple caregivers in different settings, not just in the presence of the therapist. 

MONITORING PROGRESS. As behavior therapists, we are constantly taking information, which we call data. This can be in regards to specific skill development or behavioral concerns. By recording instances and progress, the supervisor is able to systematically monitor the clients progress and modify programs as we move forwards towards treatment goals. At MIS we believe that time is precious. When a supervisor notices a program or approach is ineffective as moving towards progress, they will often change the technique, approach or program. 

FADING OUT. For all of our clients, our goal is to provide families and clients with the tools necessary to maintain the progress that has developed. Once we have consistency and behaviors are modifying in the desired direction, we will gradually and systemically fade out, while maintaining support for the families and caregivers.
