Children's Behavioral Services

Benhaven’s Children’s Behavioral Services program provides home and community services to children age 3-21 based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. 

The Children’s Behavioral Services program addresses and supports changes in socially significant behaviors by focusing on:

  • Reduction of problem behaviors
  • Teaching socially appropriate behaviors
  • Expanded communication abilities
  • Increased social skills
  • Increased independence at home and in the community.

 Services Provided...

At the start of services an intake will be conducted by CBS’s Program Director.  A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will then:

  • Initiate an assessment process which will consist of completion of a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA).
  • Write a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP).  This document will provide information including hypotheses of behaviors, strategies to improve behaviors, and specific intervention packages.
  • Schedule ABA therapy sessions and select ABA technicians to work in your home.  All technicians will be trained and supervised by a BCBA,
  • Collect data and review it regularly.  Programs will be updated as needed.
