Behavior Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of the principles of learning and behavior to bring about changes in behavior that are socially significant. For individuals diagnosed with autism, ABA strategies and techniques can lead to improvements in communication (i.e., verbal behavior), social relationships, adaptive and daily living skills, play skills, academic abilities and employment tasks.

We now accept Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, Cigna and United Healthcare.

RUBI Parent Training

Many children with autism exhibit behavioral problems, including tantrums, noncompliance, aggression, and self-injury. These behaviors may not only hinder the individual’s ability to learn but may also amplify caregiver stress. The RUBI Autism Network parent education program teaches parents to use applied behavior analysis techniques to manage their child’s challenging behaviors and to teach new skills. The Els for Autism Foundation is currently accepting families into the RUBI parent training program. As part of the program you will receive:

  • 1:1 Applied Behavior Analysis education sessions
  • Development of a behavior support plan specific to your child’s needs
  • Direct guidance and feedback regarding your child’s behaviors

The program is composed of 12 core sessions. Additional supplemental sessions may be added for specific problem behaviors (e.g., feeding, sleeping and toileting).

 

Scholarships for the RUBI Parent Training Program are available through our early education Spring into Action program and have been made possible by a grant from the Admirals Cove Foundation.  A nonrefundable application fee of $15 is required.

Apply for the scholarship program.

Jessica Weber, BCBA-D, Christine Honsberger, BCBA, and Erin Brooker Lozott, M.S., CCC-SLP, are certified RUBI Therapists offering the RUBI Autism Network Parent Training.
