Map Location Applied Behavior Analysis


We help individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities reach their potential by working collaboratively with families, schools, and relevant professionals. By focusing on ways in which people respond to their environment (behavior), we provide opportunities for them to learn in specific and observable ways, leading to a positive outcome (health).

Our Services

Early Intervention Services for Children Under Three

BHW’s intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program for children under three is a comprehensive treatment approach that includes behavioral, speech, and occupational therapy for individuals facing autism and other developmental disabilities.

Home-Based Services for Individuals Over Three

Each individual works 1:1 with a behavioral therapist on prescribed goals derived from an intervention plan. We utilize research-based methods in therapy with the intention to generalize skills across settings. Each session varies with the needs of the individual but usually incorporates language acquisition, play skills, self-help skills, behavioral modification, and social skills trainings.

School-Based Services

BHW’s positive behavior support program includes 1:1 behavior intervention in various school environments to address a broad range of challenging behaviors such as: aggression, elopement, self-injury, and tantrums. Our primary objectives are to improve academic performance, replace challenging behaviors, and increase communication, social, and coping skills. BHW believes that students have more to gain when all relevant providers, including the school team, work as one collaborative and harmonious team.
