ABS California

Alternative Behavior Strategies‘ (ABS) mission is to provide the most effective treatment possible for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. To achieve this, we respond to the goals set forth by the parents, as well as the treatment team, and then tailor a program to help the child attain these goals. We strive to provide the most effective treatment by using a variety of methods empirically proven to be effective through clinical research, offering Behavior Alternatives to Open New Opportunities.

Program Features

Alternative Behavior Strategies, Inc (ABS) is a consultation based service provider that focuses on the use of Applied Behavior Analysis to help ameliorate deficits and excesses attributable to a Pervasive Developmental Disorder or Social Emotional Disorder. ABS utilizes a variety of ABA techniques that incorporate motivation and function based teaching into the curriculum of family/community dynamic. These techniques vary from Verbal Behavior, Pivotal Response Training, Natural Environment Teaching and Positive Behavior Supports to more intense teaching methodologies such as Discrete Trial Training. Behavior change strategies focus on the development of alternative behaviors and establishment of skill sets that can replace maladaptive behavior. Programming and behavior plans are individualized to meet the needs of each client and are developed from research based assessment tools. Data sheets, behavior plans, past baselines, progress graphs and notes are all accessed LIVE through  ABPathfinder Autism Software.

Program Integration for Multiple Therapies

The additional service goals, such as: speech therapy, occupational therapy, and social skills are implemented into ABA programs. This allows for full integration of all skills to be applied on a consistent basis and in all environments. ABS skilled staff work together, within ABPathfinder (a HIPPA Compliant system) in order to view clinical data and notes in order to have a collaborative integration of all therapies.

Professionally Trained Staff

The ABS training model is extensive and exceeds BACB requirements for  RBT training and oversight. Employees are able to enroll in Applied Behavior Analysis online coursework with a skilled ABS instructor, along with a collaborative ABS staff cohort (through the  University of West Florida)  in conjunction  with a promotion to Lead Interventionist. This model has proven to provide clients with skilled technicians fully enveloped in ABA concepts.
