When you choose Behavior Analysis, Inc., you are getting the services of an entire company of caring and highly qualified professionals, not the services of a single individual. This allows you a greater collective wisdom — we have, as a group, more than 100 years experience with thousands of clients - far more than any other behavioral service provider in south Florida. We can also help with a wider range of problems and be much more responsive to your own particular needs. You can rest assured that no matter the problem you are facing, we have the training and, more importantly, the experience required to effectively and efficiently solve it.
Some of the things that set us apart from other programs or agencies are described below. Just click on the title for more information.
We use only the methods that have been scientifically-proven to produce outstanding results. Fast! The methods of Applied Behavior Analysis have been clinically proven to be the most effective method known to teach and treat individuals who have learning and/or behavioral disorders. We've helped thousands of individuals and their families overcome autism, AD/HD, behavior problems, skill deficits, and so on. We can help you!
We measure our progress daily! That means you will always know exactly how well we are progressing towards meeting our treatment objectives. Furthermore, the progress is measured objectively, it's not some subjective interpretation of how well we feel the child is doing. We can actually give you specific information about your chid's progress such as how many words he learned this week, under what circumstance's he said them, how many learning trials it took to teach him a certain concept, how many behavior problems of each type he displayed and so on. No matter the reason for treatment, we always know exactly how well we are doing. If we are making optimal progress, we'll continue doing what we are doing. If we think that we could make more progress than what the data are telling us, we'll adjust the program to create even more positive outcomes. You won't find this degree of accountability with other professionals.
A recent independent evaluation of some of the children in our autism program showed that we are making about 3 months of progress for each 1 month of therapy! That means we are actually closing the gap between the child with autism and his or her peers. In some cases, we have actually had the diagnosis of autism removed after services with us.
Our staff are true experts in teaching new skills and in treating behavior problems of all sorts. Their education and training far exceeds the minimum standards established by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board. Many persons practicing behavior analysis today simply do not have the expertise to humanely and effectively change behavior. They are often trained primarily in other areas but have taken enough classes in behavior analysis to pass the certification examination. Some people receiving training in behavior analysis have actually told us that they don't agree with the principles and procedures of behavior analysis, but that certification in behavior analysis will make them more marketable. That's unfortunate for consumers of behavior analysis services. There are too many people pretending to be experts because it is now fashionable. We select our Behavior Analysts only from the leading graduate training programs in the world. When you hire us, you'll get a highly educated, trained, experienced and competent person - you deserve nothing less.
Not only are our staff true experts at what they do, they are highly caring individuals. This helps them understand what each family is going through and are, therefore, more sensitive to each family's own unique needs. This means treating each person as a person, not as a "behavior" or as a diagnosis. You'll get what you need, not what someone is able to give you.
Our professional fees are well below the fees charged by other professions and are extremely competitive with other behavior analysts, even those with much less education, training and experience. Because we make more rapid progress than most others, your ultimate cost is even lower! Parents have routinely reported that we have made more than 10 times the progress that others made with their child before they found us. And now that we accept most insurances for autism therapy, your out of pocket cost may be ZERO, depending upon your medical insurance plan!
We believe that every single person we teach or treat has his or her on own unique needs. We do not believe in one-size-fits-all treatment. Our comprehensive assessment dictates exactly what each person should learn to do and not do and we constantly adjust our teaching plans to the person's needs and progress. For instance, no two persons in our autism programs have the same plan - each one is learning specifically what he or she needs to learn to function best in his or her environment.
We regularly receive the highest marks from our customers on satisfaction surveys. They are typically thrilled with the progress of the child, which often far exceeds their initial expectations. In addition, our current and former clients frequently refer other children and families to us. This is the ultimate compliment any customer can give us and we are very proud of the large number of families to whom they recommend Behavior Analysis, Inc. and the Florida Autism Treatment Centers.
The Florida Autism Treatment Centers are open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday - Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Other hours are available upon request. Our in-home services are available at your convenience.

Professionals throughout south Florida and around the world rely on Behavior Analysis, Inc. for education and training on state-of-the-art behavioral education and treatment procedures. Chances are that if you are receiving behavioral services in the south Florida area, we've had a hand in training your practitioner at her or his college or university or in one of our workshops or seminars. We've trained hundreds of behavior analysts, teachers, behavior specialists, school psychologists and others who provide behavioral intervention to children and adolescents with learning or behavioral problems. These people have all chosen to learn from the best!
PARENT EDUCTION AND TRAINING
We've trained hundreds and hundreds of parents and other caregivers on how to most effectively teach their children new, appropriate skills and behaviors and how to reduce or eliminate behavior problems. Participants routinely give us top marks for the content of our classes, workshops, seminars and other training events and for our knowlegable and dynamic instructors.
For your convenience, many of our informative and engaging workshops are now available online. You no longer have to wait for a seat at our popular workshops, many of these are available on demand. From time to time we'll also offer some of our "new" workshops live via the intranet.
You can watch and listen to your child's sessions at our centers through our closed circuit television systems. This is a great way to observe your child's therapy and learn from the best - your child's therapist.
LEARNING IS FUN
It is our firm belief that children learn best when they want to be in the learning environment. We know we are meeting this goal when the child runs to her Therapist with her hands up and a smile on her face. We get many children from other agencies for whom therapy has become unpleasant and aversive and something the child works to avoid by crying, running away and other avoidance behaviors. We'll overcome these issues in a short period of time. Parents have even reported to us that their children have actually asked to be taken to "therapy" at night and on weekends – it doesn't get any better than that!
