Shaping Outcomes, Changing Lives.
Adult Transition Services. With the vast numbers of young people with autism entering adulthood, the need for coaching and behavioral support is greater than ever. MBC can fill the gap where traditional ABA services have been prematurely decreased or discontinued. Many individuals and their families feel hopeful, yet apprehensive and unprepared for the adult world. They seek the tools to help navigate a network of complicated social nuances, job requirements, independent and co-living situations, or post-secondary academics.
MBC works closely with your family using behavioral therapy (ABA) to assist you and your loved one with acclimating to new environments or adapting to their current placement. Families looking to avoid the "services cliff" that occur upon graduation, will benefit from individualized goals tailored to their unique life experiences and desired outcomes. MBC can assist with supplementing current services or fading traditional ABA services to a less restrictive paradigm. Behavior consultation addresses a variety of needs such as Social and Leisure Skills, Communication, Behavior, Daily Living Skills, Vocational Skills, and Organization/Time management.
What is ABA? Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the applied use of behavioral principles to everyday situations with the goal of either increasing or decreasing socially significant behaviors. Simply put, ABA looks at how behaviors or actions can be altered or changed by adjusting the environment. Not only is ABA the most widely recognized treatment for autism spectrum disorders, it is commonly used by people of all ages and walks of life.
