Get to Know Paragon’s IBHS Autism Individual Program

What Makes Our Services Different

Our IBHS Autism Individual Program aims to provide evidence-based interventions tailored to the individual needs of each client and family. At Paragon, we use basic principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to work towards this as a combined effort. We strive to improve the quality of life for families and children through support and provide skill education to the caregiver(s).

Paragon is a Pennsylvania IBHS ABA provider in Berks and Lancaster counties. Call our location that matches the county where you live to begin services.

Paragon’s IBHS ABA Individual Program

How It Works
  • Assessment
    You will first need a written order from a qualifying licensed provider for IBHS services.  This can be done with us internally or from an outside provider.
  • Treatment & ImplementationWe will conduct a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) to better understand your child’s behaviors. We then create a collaborative treatment plan to measure the child’s and family’s progress throughout treatment together.
  • Transference of Skills
    We work with the family, school, and other appropriate caregivers to transfer each skill using ABA interventions.
  • Discharge PlanningOnce there is a collaborative agreement that the child and family have the necessary skills and support to continue progress independently, you will have successfully completed the IBHS program.

What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?

The Background Behind the Methodology

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a proven clinical therapy that’s been producing impressive results for autistics since the 1960s. Through positive reinforcement, ABA therapy can improve social, communication, and learning skills. Further, ABA assesses the development, implementation, and assessment of natural environment behaviors to promote progress and replace behavior. ABA includes observation, data collection, and functional analysis of the relationship between the environment and behavior.

At Paragon, we believe in developing an individualized treatment plan unique for each family and youth. We are committed to holistic treatment to benefit everyone involved in the development and support of our clients. To ensure the best possible outcomes, we only use evidence-based ABA interventions.
