River Valley Behavioral Health Hospital

Behavior Intervention Program

UPDATED: September 10, 2018

River Valley Behavioral Health's psychiatric children's hospital in affiliation with Cleveland Clinic Children's Center for Autism provides behavior intervention services targeting those experiencing high levels of acuity associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Behavior Intervention is an acute care intensive therapeutic program for children ages 5-17. The program is based on applied behavior analysis emphasizing intensive behavioral intervention. The format consists of highly structured interventions intended to replace the child's challenging problematic behaviors with more appropriate and beneficial ones. Participants practice healthy behaviors and learn to master some of the challenges associated with functioning in society. The program provides a positive, supportive, and nurturing environment for children.

Every child has the right to achieve their maximum potential. The success of any behavioral program rests upon the clarity of targeted goals and objectives, working toward restoring or developing the whole person, and improving the individual's social and living skills with the goal of attaining successful transition into the community.
