Esperanza Community Services’ Behavior Program helps children and adults with developmental disabilities reduce behaviors that are interfering with their well-being or preventing them from achieving maximum independence.
By applying the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in a relevant and respectful way, Esperanza is reducing behaviors that create a barrier to learning and optimal community integration (e.g. outbursts, self-isolating, self-injuring) and increase positives ones (e.g. appropriate social interactions and communication, staying on task, and life skills). And we’re seeing results!
Behavior services are incorporated Esperanza’s program areas, so that students at Esperanza School, and adults in our Coleridge Adult Day Program and our CILA residential homes all benefit. Esperanza’s Behavior Program is helping students and participants to reduce interfering behaviors and increase positive behaviors that are most relevant to their lives.
