Shaping Behavior, Shaping Lives…
The clinical mission of Positive Behavioral Dynamics is to develop, implement, and oversee comprehensive In-Home ABA Programs to teach verbal behavior, learning, academic, social, self-care, emotional, vocational, and community-living skills for individuals with autism and other developmental disorders. We also provide functional assessment, analysis, and treatment for life's most serious and challenging behavioral problems. We use behavioral assessment and intervention techniques that are scientifically grounded in the principles of learning and behavioral change.
Our goal is to provide these behavior-analytic services in a supporting and caring way that upholds the dignity of our clients. We are committed to using the least restrictive, most effective databased behavioral assessment and treatment. We focus on positive behavioral change strategies that not only seek to eliminate serious and challenging behavioral problems, but also to promote developmental skills and alternative behavior that is socially adaptive and personally gratifying to our clients. We accomplish these goals through a cooperative relationship with our clients and families.
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) involves the application of the scientific principles of learning to an understanding of human behavior and to the solving of life's practical problems. Positive Behavioral Dynamics embraces the tenets of applied behavior analysis in its functional assessment and treatment of serious and challenging behavioral problems and the establishing of adaptive behavior. The following behavior-analytic services are provided in office, home, community, and school settings.
PBD provides these behavior-analytic services throughout the Maryland Capital Region.
