Behavior problems are one of the most challenging issues we face with autism and other development disabilities. For many behavior challenges, our first instinct is to ask, “How do I get this to stop?”  This question may lead to implementing short term fixes rather than developing long term solutions. At Pyramid, we recognize the importance of developing the crucial skills our learners need to actually replace unwanted behaviors with an action that is equally effective for them.  Using the principles of applied behavior analysis, we emphasize the use of systematic reinforcement and instruction in functional activities and communication skills in order to decrease the targeted behaviors. Our onsite support offers the help you need to prevent contextually inappropriate behaviors in the first place and to react systematically to reduce them when they do occur.
