Behavioral Intervention Program
Individuals with ASD often exhibit challenging behavior. Without appropriate intervention, these behaviors can negatively impact the individual's home, school and/or work environment. The Behavioral Intervention Program allows LAF to work towards meeting the demand for high quality and accessible behavioral intervention by providing emergent behavioral therapy utilizing the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis. Treatment plans are developed by LAF's Board Certified assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) and are individualized. Once referred to LAF, Family Support Services begin and each case undergoes an assessment to determine if behavioral intervention is needed. Behavior intervention will be provided in the natural environment with a standard of ten hours total of service. After these ten hours, the behavior analyst will re-evaluate the individual to see if additional treatment is necessary. If so, services will continue until results are satisfactory. These services are free of cost to the families LAF serves.
