BCI currently has one occupational therapist, two speech therapists and two licensed speech and language assistants on staff.
Based in Worcester, Mass at 345A Greenwood Street in Worcester, 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, including: Activities of daily living, functional and augmentative communication, social skills, leisure and recreation, 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.
