BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION &

CASE MANAGEMENT

WHAT IS BEHAVIOR

CONSULTATION AND

CASE MANAGEMENT?

Behavior consultation is aimed at helping children with behavioral challenges learn adaptive skills, which include language, communication (verbal and non-verbal), and social skills. Case Management is a service offered to parents to assist their children. At Stepping Stones, we emphasize on acquiring new and appropriate behaviors while also working on helping children achieve developmentally age appropriate milestones.

ROLE OF

BEHAVIOR

CONSULTATION

At Stepping Stones, all behavior consultants/case supervisors are certified Behavior Analysts possessing certifications as a BCBA or related credential, along with a master’s degree in Psychology, Education, Applied Behavior Analysis or related field. As part of our program, such individuals develop programs to enable children to meet social and communication standards.

 

Our behavior consultation and case management service consists of three steps:

  1. Consultation: We hold a session with your child to gather general information, understand your concerns, and determine if there is a need for assessment.

  2. Assessment: We develop goals and objectives and prepare a treatment plan.

  3. Services: We start working on achieving treatment goals and track treatment progress, accordingly, through evidence-based interventions. This also helps parents understand the progress children make through this process.
