We're expanding!

If you've checked out our About Us page recently, you may have noticed that our team has gotten a little bit bigger. Not only do we have new student interns, we also welcomed a few new Behavior Analysts and some new Behavior Technicians to our team. As our team expands,  we are also excited to announce that we will be expanding our clinic space! Starting in October, we will have a few extra rooms available. With this extra space we hope to expand our groups and social skills, as well as provide some group parent trainings.

Forget New Year's Resolutions, Focus Instead on Realistic Goals!

Happy new year! January is a month for setting resolutions, starting resolutions and pretty soon, giving up on those resolutions. At Behavior Basics we don't like calling them resolutions, because the reality is that resolutions are, more often than not, doomed to fail. Instead we like to call them goals. Successful athletes, organizations, individuals all follow goal setting practices.
