Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy uses an evidence-based approach that is used to make socially significant changes in behavior to improve the lives of children.
Key Behavior uses ABA’s scientific approach to assess and analyze a child’s behaviors and ability, and uses that information to identify effective strategies to teach the child new skills and improve behaviors. Using ABA can teach children skills that will improve communication, social skills, other important behaviors.
"A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying." ~ B.F. Skinner
At Key Behavior Services, we believe that all children have the ability to learn and grow. If a child is not learning or making progress, we have to look at our teaching strategies and adjust accordingly to ensure that the child is learning and making strong progress.
Our team of professionals at Key Behavior has experience working with children from 18 months old up to 22 years old. All services provided are supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Many of the children who benefit from ABA Therapy are diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder , however, we have and will work with children with a different diagnosis or no diagnosis at all.
Key Behavior provides services to multiple districts in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas. These services include staff trainings, development of behavior intervention plans, functional behavior assessments (FBA’s), and independent educational evaluations. Services are provided to students in kindergarten through high school.
Key Behavior provides staff training to a variety of organizations, including school districts, small agencies, and non-profit organizations. Topics for training include, but are not limited to:
- Registered Behavior Technician
- Intro to ABA
- Verbal Behavior
- Data Collection
- Functional Living Skills
- Behavior Management
Key Behavior provides in-home programs for children between the ages of 2 and 21. Programs are individualized to each child, and therefore, can vary significantly from student to student. We provide trained behavior technicians to many of the families we serve, although some families receive BCBA-only services too.
