Behavior Intervention Services

EPCC BCBA Specialists are currently offering virtual consultation and support services for families struggling with behavioral challenges and skill deficits that impede students’ ability to learn and achieve independence in their daily lives. Our specialists are able to assess a student experiencing deficits or challenging behaviors and develop a treatment plan with caregivers. Services are conducted virtually via secure video conferencing software to maintain privacy and reduce the need for unnecessary travel for families. All appointments include methods to reduce challenging behaviors and increasing adaptive skills that help a student achieve more success across multiple skill domains.

Some of the specific areas addressed via virtual appointments include:

  • Reduction of Challenging Behaviors: tantrums, physical or verbal aggressions, refusal, self-injury, property destruction, pica, eloping, and self-stimulatory behaviors that impede learning)
  • Functional Communication Training: Helping a student develop appropriate verbal, gestural, or picture replacement phrases to help replace the maladaptive communication style exhibited via challenging behaviors
  • Self-Expression: teaching a student how to identify and express their feelings to others, develop their own interests and a sense of identity to help buffer against the daily stresses of life
  • Coping Skills: helping a student develop healthy alternatives to handling stressful/aversive situations
  • Social & Play Skills: teaching students learn how to initiate and maintain healthy relationships with others
  • Daily Living Skills: addressing delays in skills such as toileting, grooming, dressing, eating or meal preparation, domestic activities such as cleaning around the home
  • Community Living and Safety Skills: helping students achieve independence when engaging in activities outside of the home
