Utah Behavior Services specializes in providing quality behavioral treatment for children, adolescents and adults.

The foundation of every service is teaching new skills in a highly individualized environment. Our clients gain new skills, change their behavior, and reach their full potential when intervention is tailored to their unique learning needs. 

We have been providing comprehensive in-home behavioral intervention, based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, longer than anyone else in Utah and have the largest practice of Board Certified Analysts!

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is a systematic method for teaching new skills, increasing positive behaviors, and decreasing undesired behaviors.

All our treatment methods are evidence-based, for greater success. ABA is the only proven method for the treatment of autism. ABA is supported by extensive research, whether it is applied to a child with autism or an adult refining their athletic skills. 

ABA therapy includes:

Assessment for determining skill level and program goals
Individualized program with detailed progress data tracking
Clinic-based or in-home sessions provided by highly trained interventionists using our specialized materials
Family consultation to analyze problem behaviors, develop behavior interventions, and teach parenting skills

Who can benefit from ABA therapy:

Young children who have received a diagnosis of autism
Children who have received a diagnosis of another disability
A child who is struggling with potty training
Children who need 1:1 support with learning new skills
A child struggling in school or with homework
An older child who has difficulty with friends
Teens who are defiant
Parents who want more skills or feel out of control
Families in crisis

Our whole-family approach is unique.

Children and families are strengthened by our comprehensive approach. Our evidence based services meet the various needs of each member, and the family as a whole.

Our model of serving families results in life-long, lasting change. Put our experience to work for your child’s benefit!

This change empowers children and families to end old, problem behavior habits, and develop new, healthy patterns for a stronger family.

What family involvement looks like

Our whole-family program includes siblings, parents, peers, extended family, and others involved in the child’s life.
Interventionists can teach the skill first during a one-on-one session, then allow the child to practice the new skill with siblings, parents, and neighborhood friends.
Wrap-around support is given to each family we serve, to ensure that everyone’s needs are met, and the entire family unit is strengthened while the child is improving their behavior.

Our approach to ABA therapy

Behavior Analysts assess child’s current level and abilities and work with parents to develop goals.
An individual program is created based on your child’s strengths and skill deficits.
Programs are comprehensive, including academics (colors, letters, reading, etc.), daily living skills, social skills (sharing, turn-taking, joining play, etc.), developmental skills (pretend play, how to play with toys), and a constant, strong emphasis on communication skills.
Interventionists work directly with the client to teach new skills so that problematic habits can be replaced by productive behaviors.
Our Interventionists arrive fully equipped with everything they need to conduct a therapy session and log data. Parents provide a space to work in.
Sessions are approximately 2-5 hours in length, depending on location and program goals.
Sessions can be scheduled anywhere from once a week, to every day, depending on the child’s needs and the fit for the family.
Center-based Day Treatment and Intensive Summer Programs are also available.

Where services are provided

ABA works because it is applied- the teaching happens in the child’s natural environment, where they will be practicing and using their new skills.
Center-based sessions allow for better focus and concentration, faster mastery, and convenient integration with coordinated services.
Therapy is also delivered in other areas of the child’s life, such as community settings (parks, libraries, play grounds, schools) to promote generalization.
Support can also be given at school, day-care, or other programs where the child needs.

UTBS believes in coordinating a child’s care so that our ABA therapy can enhance and support Speech or Occupational therapy goals.

We offer in-house Speech Therapy, provided by a dual-trained Speech Language Pathologist and Behavior Analyst.

Speech Therapy can further support an individual’s overall communication goals, and the two services do not conflict with each other. In this way, speech and ABA therapies work together to promote faster language acquisition.

Funding may be provided by private health insurance, employer benefit programs, Medicaid or state-funded services, school referrals, or through hourly private-pay.
