ABA Therapy is Mandated for Down Syndrome
BCOTB’s teaching strategies and procedures have been developed and refined for over 13 years and include both behavior reduction and skill acquisition programs. Children with Down Syndrome often present behavioral challenges in the following areas: task refusal, elopement, aggression, stereotypy, and rigidity (Stein, 2016). BCOTB’s behavior management plans address these common behaviors and help children learn more adaptive life-skills.
