About Us




  • At Anderson Behavior Consulting we believe in using Best Practices for children with autism. 
  • Both our Director and our Behavior Consultant are BOTH board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) who are fully trained in ABA and verbal behavior. 
  • Our programming is scientifically driven using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). 
  • Our approach is based on the Verbal Behavior Protocol. 
  • We mainly use the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills - Revised Edition (ABLLS-R) (Partington, 2006).
  • We also use:  VB-MAPP (2nd ed.) (Sundberg, 2014)
  • All our Behavior Consultants & Sr. Behavior Interventionists are completely trained in:
  • Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) & The Verbal Behavior Protocol, as well as...
  • Behavioral observation techniques, Data collection, & Functional Assessments/Analysis.
  • Parents are the KEY:
  • We believe that Parents make the best teachers for their children with autism. 
  • Parent Training:
  • We insist that all our Client's parents are trained in the ABC's of behavior, how to understand behavior functionally and how to implement the appropriate behavior protocols based on the behavior's function.  All parents are trained to work on building communication in their children who are non-verbal or have communication and speech delays or difficulties.
  • We coach and train parents in behavioral programming and aspects of their child's Verbal Behavior Programs (or ALL of their child's program -- depending on what the parents choose for their level of involvement).
  • We give the power back to the family!!



    Our philosophy: 

    • Since we have a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) as our Director, we are fully committed to scientifcally proven methods using applied behavior analysis (ABA), that rely heavily on data collection and analysis
    • We supply individualized early intervention programming that relies on thorough data keeping in order to track learning and smooth the transition of programs as your child progresses through the ABLLS-R programming.
    • We believe in and teach Verbal Behavior
