+ 1 TO 1 SERVICES
Highly-trained Direct Interventionists (DIs) work individually with your child to address targeted areas of need. This can include working to decrease tantrums, increase independence while setting the table, or sleeping in their own bed. We will help with what is meaningful for you.
+ PROGRAM SUPERVISION
Qualified Case Supervisors provide training and support to your family, 1 on 1 Direct Interventionists (DIs), and Parent Consultants (PCs) in order to assure we continue to provide the highest quality of intervention and that all needs continue to be met throughout any provided intervention.
+ PARENT CONSULTATION
Experienced professionals come alongside your family to help equip parents, siblings, or other caregivers in order to appropriately respond to and interact with your family member with special needs. We can “do life” with you in order to show you what to do, when to do it, and how to best support your entire family.
+ SOCIAL GROUPS
At times, skills need to be targeted with peers rather than just with a DI. Social groups provide the opportunity to work on developing social interactions with multiple peers-including those that are typically developing.
+ STAFF TRAINING
Onsite training for members of your organization (large or small) by our experts in Applied Behavioral Analysis.
Skilled behavior analysts conduct interview, observation, and assessment in order to help you identify the causes of problem behavior. Based on these causes, a treatment plan is then created in collaboration with those that interact most with the individual.
+ PARENT TRAINING
Patterns provides practical training for parents both in person and online. These trainings help empower parents by providing them with the knowledge needed to provide appropriate intervention.
+ IEP SUPPPORT/EDUCATIONAL CONSULTING
Our Clinical Team includes clinicians with extensive experience working as teachers, specialists, and administrators in public schools. We can help you navigate through your child’s IEP and school experience in the educational setting.
+ CONSULTATION TO SCHOOOL DISTRICTS
Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) can offer support and consultation to school district staff members in order to assist in assuring that Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) is being provided to students. Consultation can include staff training, provision of assessments, program development, and supervision.
+ 1 TO 1 SUPPORT IN SCHOOL
Highly-trained Direct Interventionists (DIs) work individually with your students to address targeted areas of need and implement the IEP with fidelity. This can include working to teach addition or subtraction, making friends, or to attend and respond to teacher directions. We work collaboratively with you and your IEP Team!
+ BCBA SUPERVISION
If you are seeking a dynamic experience in order to gain required supervision hours to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), we are glad to meet with you to discuss options for joining our Patterns Team.
We work with School Districts, Private Insurance Providers, and Medicaid.
