welcome to 

At ATBx we believe effective treatment should be readily available for all people no matter what their circumstance or level of problematic behaviors. ATBx provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for children, youth and adults who engage in severe maladaptive behaviors that have led to expulsion, alternative school placement, restrictive residential placement and involvement with the criminal or juvenile justice systems. 

ABA is a systematic & scientific approach to modifying behavior by arranging variables in the environment. This is accomplished by training and coaching caregivers and stakeholders in the client's environment how to respond to the client’s behaviors and implement behavior plan procedures developed by a behavior analyst.  Unlike other forms of treatment that focus on changing the client, ABA focuss and changes the youth’s environment to create one that is conducive to youth learning new, more adaptive and socially valid behaviors.

- Applied Behavior Analysis is science based

- All treatments are individualized and tailored to fit the needs of each client

- Behavior analysts are prepared and trained to work with children, youth and   

  adults with high frequency and/or intensity problem behaviors

- Effective implementation can result in reduction in restraints, seclusions and/or      holds.

- Behavior analysts teach skills and replacement behaviors while     

   simultaneously decreasing problematic ones

- Ongoing training and in the moment coaching, parents and caregivers also learn     new skills that can improve over all quality of life.
