How We Can Help
1Learning LanguageLearning to communicate needs and wants is fundamental to developing almost all communication and social skills. We focus on goals that teach children how to request what they need, identify items and people, and fluidly interact with others.
2Social SkillsSocial skills are not only used daily, they are foundational for learning and communication. Each of our programs weaves ample opportunities to learn and practice social skills throughout, so that your child can make friends and interact with others.
3IndependenceBehaviors such as toileting, grooming skills, and other age-appropriate skills are critical for a child to keep their independence as they grow. It is also a big help to parents and caregivers to not have to do everything for them forever!
4Problem BehaviorWe work with you to intervene early and teach alternatives to problem behaviors. Behaviors such as aggression (hitting, hair pulling, etc.), self-injury, and self-stimming interfere with learning and become worse as they grow.
5Tolerating FoodsOur staff is adept at teaching children to tolerate, and even like, new foods. Whether it is the taste, texture, or novelty of food they objects to, we can use a variety of methods to help them have more variety in their diet.
Not only have the BehaviorSpan staff met the rigorous code of the Behavior Analysis Certification Board, but we are one of only 5 companies in the state of Colorado to have received full accreditation as a Behavior Health Center of Excellence. This means we are among the few practices in state that meet their highest standards of verified clinical quality, transparency, and accountability!
Measurement of Behaviors means Tracking behavior is the greatest tool that behavior analysts use, and what sets them apart from other therapies. We continuously monitor our effectiveness by the measurable effects we have on our clients’ behavior. This involves intensive data collection, graphing and analysis of the results
