At Behavioral Learning Systems, Inc., we have a diverse collection of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). As members of a locally-owned clinic, the team can create specialized programs carefully customized to your individual needs. We do not have a cookie-cutter approach.

We work together with you to build upon your unique interests and strengths to meet behavioral goals. Our aim is for therapy to be an environment that honors your autonomy and an event in which you enjoy participating.

Our Holistic Outlook

Therapeutic services are offered by Behavioral Learning Systems, Inc., at home and in the community. Our clinic has developed a good relationship with both public and private schools in the area, which has allowed us to provide behavioral services in academic settings as well.


The clinic offers both one-on-one therapy as well as social groups in which clients can interact with age-appropriate peers. Using both naturalistic and direct teaching methods, therapists emphasize language, social, play, daily living, and self-regulation skills as well as on-problem behavior reduction.


The team also provides parent and caregiver training so that behavioral interventions developed in the clinic can be implemented in natural environments to assure that progress is maintained and generalized.
