We work with school teams or home teams to provide staff support in designing and implementing effective interventions.
Beyond Boundaries provides both direct and indirect services within the school setting, or a combination of both services. Behavior consultation is perhaps the most common school-based service provided by Beyond Boundaries. Behavior consultation is an indirect service that is a support for school personnel which aims to train the school staff (e.g., teacher, paraeducators, related services providers, etc.) in the implemention of strategies rooted in the principles of ABA.
The behavior consultant works with the team to assess the functions of behavior and design an intervention plan that focuses on addressing interfering behaviors and reinforcing new adaptive skills.
Additionally, the behavior consultant will work with the school team in developing appropriate behavior tracking systems and data collection procedures. As part of the consultation model, the behavior consultants will model for the staff how to effectively implement a specific strategy.
In addition to indirect/consultative services, Beyond Boundaries also provides direct behavior intervention services (BIS) at school. Typically, the BIS services are provided by a behavior technician and supervised by a BCBA/LBA. The behavior technician will work directly with a learner to implement ABA programming and teaching strategies.
