Carrollton,Texas – February 16, 2021 – Behavior Pioneers, a leading Autism services center serving families throughout Texas, has announced the addition of new highly qualified members to their team. “We are bringing in two new Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to expand our reach within the communities we serve”, shares Brian Tanenbaum, owner, and clinical director at Behavior Pioneers.
With advances in Autism diagnostic tools and improved awareness of ASD symptoms, an increasing number of families are now dealing with an Autism diagnosis. In fact, as per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 1 in 54 children in the U.S. received an ASD diagnosis in 2020 alone. While timely diagnosis and early intensive child behavior therapy has tremendous benefits, the limited number of Autism treatment centers, and a shortage of qualified and experienced ABA practitioners has led to long and frustrating wait times for anxious parents of children with ASD.
In this context, Behavior Pioneers has taken a step in the right direction by strengthening their existing team of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). “All our ABA therapy specialists bring a depth of experience and top-notch credentials in the form of master’s degrees in Educational Psychology, Special Education, Early Childhood Disorders, Child Development, and Low Incidence Disabilities and Autism. Every team member specializes in a wide variety of ABA applications and specialties, including verbal behaviors, precision teaching, instructional design, and more,” says Tanenbaum.
He adds, “Our newest team members are no exception. One of them is an M.S. in ABA from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, with 4 years of solid ABA therapy experience with all ages, from children to adults. The other holds an M.Ed. degree in Special Education and Graduate Certificate in ABA from the Texas A&M University, and has 4 years of ABA experience for in-home, clinic-based, and school-based services. Our second appointee is also highly knowledgeable in sign language and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)® and has spent some time overseas, gaining valuable experience with other cultures.”
As specialists in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)-based child behavior therapy in Dallas, the team at Behavior Pioneers is passionate about helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) thrive. They offer center-based therapy at their ABA clinics in Carrollton, TX and Richardson, TX, along with in-home ABA services in Dallas, TX and Fort Worth, TX. Their customized plans also include a hybrid approach based on every child’s unique needs and every family’s specific treatment goals.
Tanenbaum and his team at Behavior Pioneers, have quickly adapted to the constraints presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. From the beginning of the pandemic, they swiftly moved to online and telehealth services in order to ensure that the families they serve continue to get access to high-quality ABA therapy in Fort Worth TX, and other locations. According to Tanenbaum, “We believe that effective play therapy for Autism in Carrollton TX, or Fort Worth TX starts with qualified professionals who are capable of delivering specialized behavior support and comprehensive instructional approaches. Our BCBAs and RBTs offer excellent engagement, support, and encouragement to children with ASD and their families.”
Every ABA practitioner at Behavior Pioneers goes through rigorous and intensive training as part of their certification. In addition to behavioral psychology, they learn how to bring about socially significant behavioral changes in children or adults with ASD. As part of their training, they learn several scientific, analytical, and conceptual tools that help them design and deliver ethical, effective, and practical behavioral interventions to the diverse families that they serve. While their BCBAs develop and supervise the customized ABA curriculum for the child with Autism, their RBTs provide the one-to-one therapy in-home, telephonically, or at their multi-location ABA clinics.
