Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

The Discrete Trial Training (DTT) program is one of the five programs offered at Behavioral Learning Center, Inc. (BLC). Our DTT program is an intensive, one-to-one intervention that focuses on teaching functional skills in a structured environment. The goal is to break down complex tasks into smaller and more manageable components so that the child is better able to learn and master necessary skills. Through repetition and methodical consistency, the child first learns to complete the goal at home, and later with his or her family in a variety of other settings.

Intensive Applied Behavior Analysis

Intensive Applied Behavior Analysis Intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (IABA) is a concentrated and structured one-to-one intervention that focuses on two primary goals: remediating maladaptive and excess behavioral challenges, and teaching the child critical and functional skills. Working in collaboration with families and caregivers, IABA identifies skill deficits interfering with the acquisition of socially acceptable responses and reduces factors potentially contributing to the proliferation of undesired behaviors.

Adapted Skills Training(AST)

The Adaptive Skills Training (AST) division of Behavioral Learning Center, Inc. focuses on building functional life skills to increase socialization and personal independence for the child. This program utilizes naturalistic settings and teaching methodologies to target specific skill deficits, all while recognizing and utilizing the child’s inherent strengths. Additionally, AST employs naturally occurring reinforcers to create a realistic approach. Utilizing principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, the intervention team will create opportunities for your child to practice everyday life skills.

In Home Parent Education

The In-Home Parent Education program was created to provide parents and caregivers with evidence-based strategies to increase the child’s learning while decreasing inappropriate behaviors. To best determine the domains and challenges that need to be targeted, IHPE administers an initial assessment and creates an individualized intervention plan that utilizes a person-centered approach. IHPE doesn’t just address a child’s challenging behaviors, it empowers parents with the knowledge and skills necessary to enhancing quality of life for their child—and the entire family.

Social Skills Groups

Social Skills Groups comprise a division of Behavioral Learning Center, Inc. and are designed to provide children and adolescents with social skill deficits an opportunity to learn, practice, and generalize skills that will aid them in building and maintaining meaningful relationships with peers. Social Skills Groups teach essential friendship-making skills such as the ability to initiate conversations, join groups, and compromise with peers. An emphasis is also placed on teaching children social-thinking and perceptive skills. We help children understand that other people have thoughts about them, that their behavior affects themselves and others, and that they can adapt their behavior to match their surroundings
