About Us

We provide in-person and virtual consultations for children and adults with moderate-to-severe disabilities, problem behavior, and limited communication skills, along with workshops and follow-up intensive training sessions for professionals working with these individuals. We also provide a functional life skills curriculum, Essential for Living, for school districts, private schools, residential programs, hospitals, and families.

We are dedicated to providing quality services for children and adults with moderate-to-severe disabilities and related products based solely on scientifically validated principles and procedures from Applied Behavior Analysis (including B.F. Skinner’s analysis of Verbal Behavior), the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, Behavior Therapy, Direct Instruction, and Precision Teaching. Procedures, which have not been validated in the scientific literature or which are not based on validated concepts and principles, are not included in our services.

We are also committed to providing services consistent with an individual’s right to effective instruction and treatment — the right to the least restrictive procedure that has a high probability of resulting in effective instruction or treatment. Programs that mandate the exclusive use of positive reinforcement without regard to the probability of effective instruction or treatment are not in accord with the scientific literature and are inconsistent with our practice of behavior analysis.
