At CHANGING LIVES BAS, we do things a little differently.

But small differences can make all the difference when it comes to your child.

Applied Behavior Analysis is used by many service providers and centers in helping individuals with autism. It’s based on the work of the renowned psychologist and proponent of Behaviorism, B.F. Skinner.

When it comes to selecting the right help for your child, different centers and service providers have slightly different perspectives on applying ABA to help your child. At CHANGING LIVES BAS, we are different in two main ways.

First is the emphasis on positive based training. In ABA, there are both positive reinforcement training and more punitive/negative reinforcement. “There are times when you need to apply both,” explains CEO Amy Buck Boyer. “But even though it’s a bit more work oftentimes, I always prefer to focus on positive reinforcement/training.” (Amy invites you to call her and she can explain all about this perspective and how it’s conducted.)

Secondly, many clinics are very good at what they do and how they can impact your child. They have great staff and team members to help apply ABA and help your child while they are at a facility, or when they are there doing in-home services. At CHANGING LIVES BAS, even though it’s a little more work for her and her team, as well as a little more involvement and work for the parents, Amy and her team actually take time to show the parents some of the principles and reinforcement methods they use to help the child, with the goal that the parent can help with the ongoing treatment of their child and become empowered to help change their own lives. It’s a powerful concept and a game changer.
