Behavioral Intervention for Adolescents
Our behavioral intervention program is designed to meet the needs of adolescent clients, typically between the ages of 13 to 18 years old, who would benefit from 15 to 30 hours of Behavioral Intervention (BI) therapy. This program focuses on teaching behaviors that are important for increasing independence and transitioning into adulthood. This means increasing communication skills, expanding social skills, and focusing on adaptive skills and skills of daily living. We want to equip clients with skills to live life. That’s what behavioral therapy should be about — finding ways to live life fully.
Clients who exhibit disruptive or maladaptive behavior will also receive individualized intervention focused on decreasing disruptive and maladaptive behavior by teaching functionally equivalent behaviors. This means we focus on determining the purpose of a child’s behavior and teaching them a way to get that need met in ways that are not harmful to themselves and others. We then work with the individual to teach them an appropriate behavior to replace the maladaptive behavior to ensure they are able to independently access their wants and needs.
We believe the individual is always right. Our Behavioral Intervention for Adolescents is all about listening to the individual and guiding them towards independence and growth.
