Who we are and what we do
Boston Behavior Learning Centers – BBLC was founded in 2016 by several dedicated professionals looking for something to call their own. We are like minded individuals who have a passion for helping others. We are dedicated to ensuring quality services are provided to our clients and their families. Every day, we focus on using evidence-based practice to help our clients achieve the best possible outcomes. We continually re-evaluate our behavior intervention plans, treatment plans as well as our techniques to help our clients flourish and to keep up with their ever-changing needs.
BBLC places great importance on establishing collaborative relationships with families and working closely with the parents and the client’s diagnostic clinicians to create goals that incorporate a long-term vision for the client. We collaborate with parents to develop treatment goals and behavior intervention plans based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) that can be realistically implemented in the home and community. Our goal is to exceed your expectations and provide you and your family the best care we can.
What might ABA look like for my child?
We treat clients with Autism Spectrum Disorders from the time they are toddlers into adulthood. Our staff work very hard to address the hallmarks of the disability including communication, behavior and social impairments. Not every client is the same which means our individualized programming is tailored to meet the needs of every individual we see. Our clients vary in functioning level and degree of challenges. For those with very intensive needs, a tailor-made program may involve reducing maladaptive behaviors (e.g., aggression, stereotypy or self-injury), teaching using the bathroom independently, becoming more independent with washing or grooming, communicating with others, eating wider varieties of foods or even learning how to play with toys. For another client, it may mean accessing community resources more independently, such as learning to use public transportation or socializing and communicating effectively with peers. Some clients need support managing an after school routine (e.g., preparing a snack, unpacking a backpack, ensuring homework or library books are returned to the back pack and tidying up a bedroom). It might also involve teaching a leisure skill or creating a grocery list and shopping for goods or supplies. We address what is meaningful for each client by keeping the client’s independence and access to a fuller life in mind. This is a dimension of what makes ABA true to its science.
