How We Can Help
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is best known as an effective treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and individuals with developmental disabilities. But its evidence-based principles are effective for anyone and everyone who wants to change their behavior.
We meet every client where they are. Whether you have a child who struggles with toilet training or you are an adult who wants to start anew, B.E.T.H. can help.
What Do ABA Services Look Like?
We start by getting to know you. Who are you; what makes you, you? What are your current skills? What is your baseline of productive behavior that we can build upon? Have you ever received services before, and did they work for you or your child? (no judgements, behavior change is hard) What is your current schedule and what dictates you or your family’s behavioral needs?
With the help of formal assessments, we set targeted goals and objectives to address behavior.
We design a personalized treatment plan that details the necessary interventions to change behavior and acquire new skills.
We establish a method for tracking that measures behavior and skill acquisition over time. This includes documenting a baseline of behavior that all future data can be measured against. We provide you with the tools necessary to continue this data collection process outside of session.
Throughout treatment, we continuously reevaluate the effectiveness of your treatment plan and the prescribed intervention by the B.E.T.H. Services team. We will update treatment options based on the results of current behaviors and changes in your environments.

Frequently Asked Questions
A behavioral assessment is a formal tool used to analyze an individual’s current skills and behavioral repertoires. They are also used to identify the pivotal skills and behaviors that will help the individual build a repertoire of self-advocacy, independence, productivity, and interpersonal relationships within their community. Developing these skills and behaviors is fundamental to creating a path toward both happiness and behavior change. At B.E.T.H., we consider assessments to be an important guide on the path to success. That said, our experience tells us that no path is the same and our treatment plans are always customized to meet your needs.
The assessments we use are determined by the targeted behavior and desired outcomes of new and existing skills. Based on your intake, we determine which assessments best suit you and your current behavioral outcomes.
For individuals living with autism, we use two different behavior assessments to help determine the most appropriate skills to teach: the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS) and the Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS).
The ABLLS is a curriculum-based guide, which tracks an individual’s language and/or learning delays. This assessment helps us identify potential skills and deficits to create an individualized program for your child.
The AFLS is a guide that emerges out of protocols to assess functional, practical and essential skills for everyday life. This allows us to identify and target skills that are needed for independent daily living, home and community participation, and to prepare the learner for school or vocational training.
Before a client arrives, the therapist reviews data from past sessions and creates a detailed plan of goals and objectives based on the BCBA’s treatment plan for that current session. Once the client arrives, a session can last anywhere from 1 to 7 hours, depending on the client’s current status of behavior and prescribed behavioral script. The technician will spend time engaging and pairing with the client to establish a friendly and trusting relationship before transitioning into the therapeutic and learning activities. Parents are welcome to join the BCBA in observing the session through our one-way mirror; this is a useful way to gain insight into how and why a technician interacts with your child in the way that they do.
