Behavioral Concepts, a Worcester agency for children with autism, is branching out with a new service: continuing education.
Behavioral Concepts said it has obtained approval from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board as an approved continuing education provider. It held its first continuing education event Nov. 29 on ethical issues in behavioral feeding.
Also known as BCI, the agency helps train future clinicians through undergraduate and graduate program affiliations including on-site degree support through partnerships with Quinsigamond Community College and Bay Path University, and an off-site program at Assumption College.
BCI holds day programs for autistic children from 3 to 6 years old, as well as after school programs and activities on Saturdays focused on developing social skills. It has a location in Fitchburg.
