Behavioral Interventions for Children, LLC (BIC) serves children in Los Angeles County with ABA and Autism related consultations, training, and related services.
The behavioral programs at BIC are designed to help children with Autism and other developmental disabilities to improve upon language, social, and interpersonal skills. All programs are developed and supervised by Dr. Joseph Jacobs, a doctoral-level board certified behavior analyst. In addition, BIC will provide behavioral therapists to implement the behavioral intervention programs for your child. All interventions are based on principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA is the application of the principles of learning theory to change behavior of social significance (1968). This treatment approach has been endorsed by the US Surgeon General (1999) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (2001) for treating individuals with autism. BIC offers a highly personalized approach tailored to individual needs of each child. Developmental milestones and unique strengths and weaknesses of each child are considered for development of treatment goals and optimal interventions based on the principles of ABA.
