Education and Behavioral Intervention
The Johnson Center provides educational and positive behavioral support to ensure that children have the skills necessary to reach their full potential.
At The Johnson Center, a number of behavioral and educational assessments are offered. Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA), language and preference assessments, functional analysis, and program analysis are just a few of those offered to ensure that relevant interventions are being implemented for each child.
The Johnson Center offers consultation for ABA teams. If you are seeking a second opinion, we are available to work with your existing team to make recommendations for program improvement or expansion.
Our staff is also available for consultation with professionals in the school environment. Educators are sometimes faced with a student with extensive challenges, and we can assist the school in finding the best approach to meet these challenges. Sometimes, classroom-wide interventions to meet specific group challenges are necessary.
Supervision and Training
There are several options for supervision available at The Johnson Center, for both professionals and families.
Our staff is available to supervise students who are working toward their BCBA or BCaBA (through individual or group supervision), as well as practicing BCaBA’s.
