Empower Behavioral Services is comprised of dedicated and compassionate professionals who use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to empower caregivers and parents in guiding their child to achieving their potential.
Initial Assessment and Treatment Planning
Upon referral, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will conduct a detailed skills and behavioral assessment from which an individualized treatment plan will be developed.
Areas we have helped our clients include:
Decreasing challenging behaviors (tantrums, non-compliance, self-injury, etc.)
Functional communication training
Daily living and safety skills
Play and independent leisure skills
All ABA programming is designed and continually monitored by the BCBA.
Direct services are provided 1:1 by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) who are supervised regularly by the BCBA. As a small company, we are able to provide ample session time with both the RBT and BCBA present. During each session, data is collected and progress is monitored. The programming is then tweaked based on this data to ensure maximum skill acquisition is occurring and challenging behaviors are decreasing.
We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and recognize that every learner is unique. An individualized blend of ABA methods will be designed to meet each learner's needs.
Training parents and caregivers is an integral part of a successful treatment package. It is necessary for family members to understand and implement the strategies applied during 1:1 therapy sessions. The BCBA will use hands-on training to show family members how to use applied behavior analysis with their child.
We recognize that a team approach is important to help our clients' progress. Parent consultations occur on a regular basis and our BCBAs are available to attend school meetings and collaborate with other service providers.
Empower Behavioral Services provides school-based consultation to both public and private schools. Services may include program design, staff training, functional behavior assessments, classroom management consultation, and individual case consultations. We will work closely with your staff to tailor our services to meet specific needs.
Social Skills Groups
Social Skills Groups are currently held Saturdays at our center in Fredericksburg. Your child will be placed in a group with other children who are working on similar goals.
