We offer behavior supports for adults and children from our team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts.
Individualized Support Leads to Improved
Quality of Life
Bethesda assists people in achieving their hopes and dreams
through the support of behavioral therapy for children and adults with autism
and other developmental disabilities. Using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA),
our Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior
Technicians (RBTs) will work one-on-one with your loved one, as well as with
the family, to help identify and develop the skills your child needs to achieve
their best possible life.
At Bethesda, we use the science of Applied Behavior Analysis with a focus on four areas:
people safely, effectively, and respectfully communicate wants, needs, likes
and dislikes in ways that are understood by others.
people safely and effectively gain the attention of others in ways that are
understood by others.
people joyfully and safely engage in life’s activities.
people safely, effectively and diplomatically cope with adverse situations that
are in their long-term best interest.

The team tracks progress and uses ongoing data analysis to ensure the plan is continuously tailored to maximize effectiveness.
