Behavioral Concepts, Inc. (BCI), a company of behavioral clinicians specializing in the treatment of children with autism in Central Massachusetts, will celebrate the recent opening of its new location at 207 Authority Drive in Fitchburg with an open house on Tuesday, January 17, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The open house will feature tours of the facility and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with brief remarks from BCI staff members, elected officials and members of the business community. Light refreshments will be served. The general public is welcome to attend.
“There is a great demand for services for children with autism in the Fitchburg/Route 2 corridor. Before opening this location, we were only been able to work with clients in their homes,” said Colleen Canty, director of BCI’s Fitchburg location. “With this office in place, we have the ability to offer the services we have in Worcester to children in Fitchburg and surrounding communities in north central Massachusetts.”
BCI provides much-needed services to children with autism and their families. BCI instructional programs are delivered using discrete trial training, task analysis, and systematic prompting procedures implemented by ABA therapists who have successfully completed pre-service training, on-site, and quarterly evaluations by their clinical supervisors.
Instruction is provided across a variety of domains, included by not limited to: Activities of daily living, functional and augmentative communication, functional academics and community outings and safety awareness. Social skills groups with peer models are also offered as part of BCI’s services. A heavy emphasis is placed on generalization and maintenance of skills, in addition to family training, so that families may implement the supports and carry-over skills in the home.
To RSVP to attend the open house on January 17, please RSVP by January 10 to Colleen Canty at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-735-9290.
