Before you view these services it is imperative to note that the BCBAs and staff currently employed at Anchor ABA are NOT medical doctors. All services provided are behavior analytic in nature and use the principles of ABA to address common behavioral concerns associated to eating.
By using parent reports, direct observation, and clinical assessment our BCBAs and their team will complete a Functional Behavioral Assessment to determine the underlying function behind your child's food refusal, and/or food selectivity. Once the function behind your child's eating patterns is determined a treatment packaged based in ABA can be designed (Piazza 2003).
Overall. behavioral interventions have been shown through research to help reduce, and in some cases even eliminate tantrums and non-compliance during meals (Piazza 2003).
Children who may be eligible for this service program
Interventions will be delivered in your home setting by BCBAs and their specially trained teams.
Parent trainings will be incorporated through this program and parent/family participation is mandatory.
Your child's treatment goals have been met once they begin to demonstrate they can generalize their new skills to novel foods and are eating well with families in the home setting as indicated by our data collection and progress reports. Once families feel confident implementing these procedures independently we can phase our visits out and discharge from this program.
We offer programs in multiple levels based off of reported parent need and assessment:
Sessions are never less than 60 minutes and never over 2 hours.
All participants of this program will need a medical doctors release
