The Community Consultation Program provides evidence-based technical assistance and training to school teams and others who are working with children with disabilities and/or behavioral challenges. We have expertise in the following areas:

  • Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
  • Educational Consultations
  • Inclusion Consultations
  • Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)

We also provide continuing education and staff development programs for professionals working with children with developmental disabilities.

Our goals are to increase the capacity of school or agency personnel to support their own students. We assist in the development and implementation of programs aimed at decreasing challenging behavior and increasing positive social and academic skills. We also ensure that children with challenging learning needs receive appropriate instruction and services to maximize independence.

Consultation may include building capacity with child-specific teams or classroom teams at the school district or agency level. Consultation can also be provided to ensure that children with disabilities are educated in the most inclusive environment possible. Our consultant team includes behavior analysts, clinical and school psychologists, and educators who have expertise in using evidence-based interventions for students with Autism spectrum disorder, challenging behavior, emotional and behavior disorders.
