FBS currently has two programs, each with different concentrations: Behavioral Intervention Services and Social Connections. See below for more details.
Behavioral Intervention Services
The focus of BIS is to reduce problem behaviors while increasing appropriate replacement skills for individuals and to train families and other caregivers to implement and maintain interventions. We place a heavy focus on enhancing communication skills and skills that foster independence. In addition, we aim to teach a variety of skills relevant to everyday life such as personal care, appropriate leisure skills, relevant community skills, and tolerating medical and dental procedures.
