Behavioral Management for Adults & Children (BMAC)

Taking an empirically driven, applied behavior analysis approach, this Rehab Without Walls program provides customized services that meet the highly specialized needs of children with intellectual disabilities. It has the resources and experience to work with the most emotionally and behaviorally challenged young people as well as the connections with key agencies and schools systems to help improve social integration.

The first things parents need to know about the Behavioral Management for Adults and Children (BMAC) program? That it works. Our area of specialty? Behavioral change. By the time a child gets referred to us, parents and teachers have tried just about every program and approach without success. In fact, typically, the child’s behavioral problems have progressed to the point where participating in school, social interaction and day-to-day activities in the community is no longer an option. BMAC uses a behavioral analysis approach that systematically addresses the challenging behaviors to create measurable change.

Steeped in years of scientific research and proven results, this approach relies on positive behavioral reinforcement strategies, clear objectives, ongoing data collection to monitor behavioral progress, teaching of social, behavioral, self-care and life skills, and large doses of flexibility and creativity to build an individualized treatment plan for each child.

At the initial referral, the team performs a functional behavioral assessment to identify behavioral challenges and establish a baseline. From there, we develop a positive behavioral support plan to systematically address the behaviors, building in measureable, functional goals. Children work one-to-one with a skilled behavioral technician, often over a period of years, in a variety of settings including home, school and the community. This gives stability and builds trust and communication. Often the behavioral technicians help the patient transition into adulthood or greater independence. The overall goal of all our treatment plans, however, is to help the child participate more fully in the world, the community and their families.

Diagnoses seen include autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome, Angelman syndrome, Smith-magenis syndrome and severe behavioral problems.
