We provide children with the tools to grow behaviorally, academically, socially, & more.
What do we do?... In a nutshell
We also share these tools (i.e. principles of behavior & the Nurtured Heart Approach™) with parents, caregivers, educators, agencies & schools so they are able to increase their knowledge of behavior & ultimately enhance the lives of every child they encounter.
Our educated & experienced consultants (board certified) are here to serve your needs & the needs of your child. All services are individualized for each specific client... the child, the family, agency, &/or school.
Changing Behavior provides proven effective, evidence-based behavioral services. All of our services are based on the principles of behavior & ABA methodology. ABA, or "applied behavior analysis," has been validated through research & experience for the past 35 years. It has been endorsed by the Surgeon General, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), & the Association for Science in Autism Research.
Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA)
It is important to have a qualified behavior professional on your team. Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA or BCaBA) are ideal people to work with. BCBAs hold at least a Master's degree, have taken required behavior courses (outlined by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board), completed required supervision hours, & passed the rigorous certification exam.

Who are Behavioral Services for?
Principles of behavior can be used with any individual, whether they have a diagnosis or not. "ABA methods have been used successfully with many kinds of learners of all ages, with and without disabilities, in many different settings" (Autism Speaks).
"Behavior" is defined as anything we do or say. We tailor our methods based on a person's behavior & the function/purpose that particular behavior serves (e.g. attention seeking, escape, avoidance).
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Down syndrome
- Other developmental delays
- Anyone with behavior related concerns
Behavior principles can be applied anywhere... therapy sessions, schools, home, community settings, in the workplace, vacations, & more.
