The Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) observes classrooms and conducts assessments to identify why students engage in certain challenging behaviors. The BCBA works with the educational and clinical teams to identify alternative skills that can be taught as a replacement. Group contingencies to increase classroom participation are also developed with teachers to further assist with behavioral management.
