Behavioral Concepts, Inc. (BCI), a company of behavioral clinicians specializing in the care of children with autism in Central Massachusetts, recently announced plans to open an additional office at 207 Authority Drive in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. The new location is set to open later this month.
“Our goal has been to serve students within a one-hour radius of our main office in Worcester. We have experienced a high demand for our services along the Route 2 corridor which has created a need for this additional location,” said Dr. Jeff Robinson, BCI founder and director. “The new location will enable us to provide intensive day, after school, and weekend social skills training for clients in that area.”
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. BCI staff also includes one occupational therapist, two speech therapists and two licensed speech and language assistants on staff.
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.
“An added but not to be overlooked benefit of the new location is our relationship with Fitchburg State University. We’ve had an ongoing relationship with the University through an internship program and many of our therapists did their undergraduate and graduate work there,” said Robinson. “With the new location and the growing need for service, we hope to build an even stronger bond with Fitchburg State students and faculty.”
