Areas of Treatment
An individualized behavior plan is developed for each child, based on a functional behavior analysis. Problem behaviors are assessed and staff teach the child new behaviors to meet his or her needs. Based on the results of the VB-MAPP, communication skills are systematically taught using developmentally appropriate materials. Children will learn how to ask for what they want, label what they see, answer questions, imitate the behavior of others, and play, both independently and with other children. Toileting and other self-help skills are taught with generalization in mind, so that skills can carry over into the home setting.
