Behavioral Support Center

Behavioral Support Center provides an array of behavioral support services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Using a comprehensive approach, the behavioral support team helps individuals understand their challenging behaviors and develop Behavior Plans. These plans are designed to improve the independence of individuals with disabilities. Using data from a wide variety of assessment tools, the behavioral support center can work with families to identify the behavior support services they need.

Behavior support specialists work closely with clients, family members, and program staff to develop and implement a customized behavioral plan. They use differential reinforcement, environmental modifications, and functional communication to improve clients’ functioning. They also work with caregivers to help clients generalize their new skills and behaviors at home. In addition to focusing on behavior and education, behavior support services also include an evaluation of the individual’s strengths and weaknesses.

Josh has worked with clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder for over ten years and has a specialty in providing positive behavior supports and functional communication training.
