FOCUS Behavioral Associates exists to serve and support the behavioral needs of children and adults with autism, ADHD, developmental disabilities, and other behavioral disorders.
Who we serve
FOCUS uses Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) strategies which are beneficial for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Down’s Syndrome, Intellectual Disabilities, and other developmental disabilities.
You will find value in the services at FOCUS if you have a need for any of the following: behavioral management, self-management, communication skills, social skills, life skills, and job skills training.
We also have several programs benefiting family members and professional caregivers of our clients.
The Focus Family
From the first time a client walks through the doors, he/she is assigned to a FOCUS Family Team. The Team will consist of BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst), RBTs (Registered Behavior Technician), and a certified Special Education Curriculum Director. We believe this FOCUS Family Team approach provides the most supportive environment for our client’s greatest success.
We know feedback from you, the caregiver, is important. In addition to weekly parent training and updates on your child’s progress, we commit to giving you written quarterly progress reports outlining the current status on each goal the client is working on. We believe our commitment to our client’s success is unparalleled.
We provide custom support
Our therapists provide center-based, home-based, and community-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques to treat and enhance the lives of children and adults with socially significant behaviors.
Our work does not end with the client. We also work directly with the family, caregivers, teachers, and other professional staff that surround and support the client on a daily basis.
The FOCUS family is committed to helping individuals with disabilities, shape and develop a better quality of life by using evidence-based treatment approaches in partnership with their caregivers.
We do not require any of our clients to sign a contract for services.
