Changing Behavior
Individualized, Evidence-Based Practices
Mission, Vision, Core Values
What do we do?... In a nutshell
We provide children with the tools to grow behaviorally, academically, socially, & more.

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. For more information on qualified individuals please visit

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).

  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Down syndrome
  • ADHD
  • Other developmental delays
  • Anyone with behavior related concerns
"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).

Behavior principles can be applied anywhere... therapy sessions, schools, home, community settings, in the workplace, vacations, & more.
