Behavioral therapy services for children with Autism, or a related diagnosis, now available in Perham
Behavior Care Specialists (BCS) is now offering intensive early intervention and school age services for children diagnosed with autism, pervasive developmental disorders and related developmental disabilities. Autism and autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are estimated to affect 1 in 68 American children. Both terms are used to identify a wide range of disorders that have their roots in early brain development. A diagnosis of any developmental delay can be daunting, but early intervention and proven therapy, can ensure that each child has the best chance to reach his or her full potential
BCS services will include consultations, diagnostics, training and behavioral therapy. Our program is designed to provide young patients with the language, social, pre-academic and independent living skills needed for success in life. BCS offers behavioral treatment utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and can work with children, physicians and schools to create the best program for the individual child. ABA can be used to teach a range of skills and positive behaviors, including functional living skills, reading, language, social skills, positive peer support, academic engagement, and more. ABA methodology is also effective in decreasing inappropriate behaviors such as tantrums, noncompliance, bed-wetting, feeding problems, aggression, and self-injury. ABA can be effective for children of all ages. However, the younger it is implemented, the better the results. Research shows that skill development programs begun at a young age foster better outcomes and can reduce the likelihood of more severe or dangerous behaviors later in life.
Our commitment to each family and each child we serve is to provide the highest quality treatment available. Our approach is to develop a personal program, with the input of parents, custom-tailored to meet the needs of each child and family we serve.
