Schedule an Initial Assessment and Tour

Initial assessments are completed in our centers and conducted by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Initial assessments are used to learn more about your child, your family, your goals, and answer questions. Initial Assessments are the first step in building an individualized program for your child. Tours can also be scheduled as part of the process.

Our Safety Plan and Priorities During Covid-19

The past several months have been unlike anything we’ve ever experienced. We continue to work hard to evolve so we can continue to provide the best support to the families we serve and the members of our team. We want to continue to provide children with the best care possible, even if it may look a little different than it has in the past. As states begin to reopen, we’d like to share an update on how we are planning to transition back to the centers safely.

As always, safety is our top priority. Every decision made was through the lens of protecting the health of our families and team members. To create an environment that is safe for everyone, we will be taking a phased approach to returning to the centers.
We’ve created this short video that discusses our approach to opening and details on how we’re making our centers safe.

A Day in the Life of a Child at Bierman ABA

Your Child’s Team

BCBAs: BCBA’s have advanced education (masters degree) and have met the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) requirements. Additionally, our BCBA’s have completed our advanced training program, a series of advanced coursework designed to further sharpen child programming repertoires with the most advanced and innovative treatment techniques.

The Behavior analyst is the ultimate resource. BCBAs are an expert on your child’s program and needs. Behavior Analysts listen to your family needs and provide programming and training to improve life at home for your entire family.

Behavior Technicians: A team of several Behavior Technicians, who work directly with your child 1:1 all day and are trained and overseen by the Behavior Analyst. Our behavior technicians specialize in following your child’s motivation to make learning fun and engaging while maximizing teaching opportunities to accelerate progress.

From a child’s point of view: A Behavior Tech is the ultimate, fun friend! They make learning fun, know all the best toys and games, sing songs, love to laugh, and, most importantly, offer support when your child is faced with a challenge.

Starting an ABA Program

During the early weeks of ABA, your child will become familiar with his or her team members while the team learns all about your child’s strengths, skills needs, and learning style.

Your child’s BCBA will use several evaluation tools to design a personalized intervention and skill development plan for your child. A team of behavior technicians will then work with your child 1:1 to implement the programs developed by the BCBA.

Because every child is different, each child’s program is unique and personalized to meet your child’s needs.

Goals & Learning

Our most significant focus is building language and communication skills. Our comprehensive ABA programs are designed to accelerate learning to close the learning gap between children with autism and other children their age.

We teach children how to learn from their environment, a skill that their typically developing peers already have.

Younger children may receive more play-based teaching within the natural environment, similar to a preschool. Older children may have a more structured day with more table time work, similar to a grade school level classroom

Our Centers

We’ve created spaces where your child will want to be. Our centers are designed with your child’s learning in mind, eliminating barriers while maximizing achievement and fun!
By removing barriers to learning, children see learning as a fun activity that gives them a sense of pride.

Walking through our centers, you will see children: reading books, trying on costumes, shooting hoops, painting, and growing plants. These activities not only make learning fun but prepare children for a successful future.

Parent Involvement

For all of our programs, parent training is key to a child’s success. A BCBA will meet monthly with parents to discuss progress and provide parent training. Our teams are also available during drop off and pick up times if needed and are available
