ABA services involve intensive one-on-one therapy that typically occurs between 4 and 35 hours per week with clients between 18-months and 18-years of age. It is a comprehensive program that works on communication (requesting, labeling, early conversation skills), social skills (greetings, sharing), and problem behaviors (decrease/replace with appropriate alternatives). Therapy can take place in a variety of settings including the clinic.
Integrated Behavior Solutions has an in-house Occupational Therapist. Occupational Therapy is a creative, scientific, and evidence-based practice that encourages development, independence, and rehabilitation through the practice of everyday activities (occupations) that are meaningful to the individual. A child's occupation includes activities that enable them to learn and develop life skills, be creative, and derive enjoyment, thrive, and be productive.
Integrated Behavior Solutions currently partners with a Speech and Language Pathologist at Inspire Speech who provides in speech services in house. IBS and Inspire strive for effective collaboration with shared clients to provide the most beneficial care possible.
We are now offering school consultation/collaboration services to school districts and families. Our services focus on an adaptive FBA (Functional Behavior Assessment) process, Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP), and/or individual student consultations.
Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) are developed with the data generated from the FBA. These plans focus on positive behavior supports and reinforcement strategies as opposed to punishment strategies. Research has shown that teaching positive behaviors as alternatives to challenging behaviors increases the effectiveness of the change process.
Individual consultations focus on specific students and their specific behaviors of concern.
School, Consultation/ Collaboration
We are now offering school consultation/collaboration services to school districts and families. Our services focus on an adaptive FBA (Functional Behavior Assessment) process, Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP), and/or individual student consultations. The adaptive FBAprocess is designed for real-time change, instead of change that occurs only after the FBA is completed, and it relies on collaboration with the schools and caregivers instead of mere consultation. Implementing the FBA process in this way allows for all key stakeholders to be involved, which increases the usefulness and feasibility of the recommendations. BIPs are developed with the data generated from the FBA. These plans focus on positive behavior supports and reinforcement strategies as opposed to punishment strategies.
The goal of these services are to bring hey stakeholders to the table and create positive behavior change plans for the student and school staff.
