Behavioral Services

Individuals in Anderson Center's day and residential programs exhibit an array of moderate to severe learning, communicative and behavioral disorders. Behavior specialists in our Behavioral Services Department address the unique social, emotional and behavioral needs of the individuals we serve.


  • Every individual is assigned a behavior specialist who conducts a Functional Behavior Assessment in conjunction with the entire treatment team and the individual's family.
  • The result of this assessment helps the team determine the need for a comprehensive Behavior Support Plan and/or other behavioral strategies necessary to teach new skills, enhance the quality of life and ensure the safety of each individual in our care.
  • Consulting professionals provide psychiatric and psychological support services.
