BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES


B*E*T*A provides unique individualized services to people considered to have disabilities. Those we serve typically learn in a significantly different fashion than most; usually engage in behaviors considered objectionable by those around them; often have no developed system and skills for communication to and from others; and, frequently have difficulties with sensory input and/or physical performance. When people considered to have disabilities have not yet learned an important life skill (e.g., eating, toileting, leisure engagement, communication, recreation) and/or engage in behavior that others find objectionable or that may create danger for themselves or others (e.g., failure to perform activities, unacceptable physical contact), we provide remediation of unique effectiveness specially designed for each individual.

B*E*T*A adheres to a strict full inclusion policy -- we provide assistance to anyone by whom or for whom requested, whenever we can secure the resources necessary to support the level of assistance required for success. We insist on providing assistance to the person to the greatest degree possible in naturally occurring situations including the highest proportion of people not considered disabled. We stress skill development in the areas of leisure engagement, communication, community participation, productive work and/or schoolwork, and self care. A primary essential goal in all instances is to maximize the degree to which we can assist individuals to become as responsive to and interactive with others as possible.

B*E*T*A provides exclusively positive personal support -- we steadfastly refrain from the use of things that others might consider at all aversive and do not use edible or tangible incentives outside of contexts in which these normally occur (e.g., food/drink at meals, money at work). All supports provided by B*E*T*A are “individual, positive, and functional”.

B*E*T*A assists people through the strict application of well established principles of learning and behavior analysis, coupled with an underlying focus on empathic understanding.

Service options include:

  1. "Full Inclusion Supports": specially and individually designed, provided, and supervised one on one support enabling people considered disabled to participate and succeed in general education, recreation, work, and home environments, including behavior improvement;


  2. "Custom Instruction": specially and individually designed, provided, and supervised one on one support enabling people considered disabled to participate and succeed in a community based daily program of instruction and behavior improvement, leading to full inclusion;


  3. “Individualized Extended Day Supports”: specially and individually designed, provided, and supervised one on one support enabling people considered disabled to participate and succeed in personal recreation and leisure activities outside of regular school or work hours.


  4. Assessment, consultation, training, supervision, program development, and materials for individuals, family members, instructional personnel, and other care or service providers, to promote behavior improvement, communication growth, and skill development.
