The Behavior Treatment and Training Center (BTTC) recognizes that some people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (including mental retardation and autism spectrum disorders) exhibit challenging behaviors that may include:

  • Self injurious behavior
  • Aggression toward others
  • Seriously disruptive behavior
  • Or other behavior which threatens their continued residence in the community in which they live

This short-term residential program assists families in maintaining their children in their family homes and avoiding placement in long-term care residential facilities. By using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the extensive "hands-on" training and consultation serves the children in the program as well as their families and school providers. The goal for the program is to return the children successfully to their own communities. As a condition of admission, families must agree to participate in training and to accept their child back into their home upon discharge from the program.

The Behavior Treatment and Training Center believes that problem behaviors can be changed and that appropriate behavior can be developed and increased.

We are dedicated to ensuring:

  • Positive, proactive, safe, ethical and humane state-of-the-art intervention
  • Meaningful and fully involved participation by parents, guardians, and providers
  • Full protection of human rights
  • Open, honest, and productive consultation
  • Dignity and respect for the people we serve and their families
  • Well-managed, fully staffed therapeutic homes
