Olive Behavior Care

Autism Behavior Analysis

Olive Behavior Care

UPDATED: November 1, 2018

Olive was born out of witnessing parent’s frustration to navigate through an agency’s vast network of behavior personnel. We implement a simple and consistent service model by only having Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) work directly with your child. With this model we ensure consistent and high quality care from the best BCBAs.

At Olive, we use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to develop data-driven care. ABA is the first science based intervention which uses reinforcement strategies shown to have a long-lasting positive impact on functional social skills, independence in daily tasks, language acquisition & more. By utilizing this data-driven approach we maintain continued success even with the most challenging behaviors.

While many ABA agencies are limited to in-home, at school or in clinic treatment, Olive offers uniquely flexible options with group sessions and community outings. This promotes social opportunities and real world learning that too often is overlooked.

Functional Living-Skills:
Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts help children develop life long skills in communication, flexible thinking, safety, play, self-regulation & academics.

Behavior Modification:
We transform tantrum behaviors, verbal and physical aggression and self-injury into positive behavior change.

Parent Education:
Parent participation is at the forefront of our practice. We provide consistent tools and education for the whole family.

Collaborative Communication:
We recognize that behavior change is a constantly evolving process. Our team is here for you every step of the way.
