Behavior Therapy and Consultation
Prism Behavioral Consulting provides an individualized, comprehensive approach to behavior therapy and consultation services, with focus on the diverse needs of each client and family. We utilize the science of Applied Behavior Analysis to impact meaningful change in behavior and in peoples' lives. Want to learn more about ABA and how we're making sure to use it correctly, ethically, and respectfully? Check out our FAQs.
Functional Behavior Assessment
FBAs are used to determine the function or "why" of a specific behavior. Implementing an FBA involves identifying and defining target behaviors, as well as collecting data on the events that precede and follow these behaviors through observation. Once we are able to determine the function of a behavior, we can then design a function based intervention and teach functionally equivalent replacement behaviors with the goal of making the world easier to navigate for each individual. Rather than just looking the basic functions of behavior as indicated by ABA principles, we ask "what need isn't being met and how can we help this person get that need met safely and efficiently?"
Giving Individuals and Families Tools to Succeed
We believe that by teaching and sharing knowledge with others, we provide them with tools for their tool box. It is our goal to help families of every shape, size, and background feel equipped to navigate challenges and achieve their goals while embracing their child's individuality!
Comprehensive Assessments and Support Plans
Assessments are an invaluable tool that allow us to determine each person's strengths and potential areas for growth. We use these to develop individually tailored support plans.
Caregiver Collaboration and Education
Because caregiver involvement is such an integral part of child success, we want to provide support with your family's needs in mind. We believe in equipping families with the tools needed to achieve their goals during and outside of therapy sessions. Our goal is to involve caregivers each step of the way and collaborate with them to to maximize their child's learning and skill development in a way that is fun, safe, and respectful for all parties involved! We believe magic can happen when your knowledge of and love for your child meets the tools we have to share.
Compassion and Innovation
We acknowledge that ABA has a problematic history. We at Prism are committed to supporting our clients in finding more functional ways to meet their sensory, emotional, and communication needs. We recognize and honor the personhood and autonomy of each client, looking toward new horizons in holistic ABA care rather than leaning on hurtful roots.
Community Involvement and Support
It's important for us to provide services and support beyond the typical 1:1 and single-family oriented services.
