The Intensive Behavioral Intervention Services (IBIS) Clinic provides behavioral services using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) methods to teach skills and reduce behavioral issues. The IBIS Clinic provides state-of-the-art behavioral services including early intervention, picky eating intervention, and parent training.

ABA is based on scientifically validated procedures and relies on direct observation, measurement, and analysis of behavior. ABA is currently the only treatment for autism with enough independent scientific research to be endorsed as effective by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the United States Surgeon General.

In addition to providing services, the IBIS Clinic is also a training site for Behavior Analysis undergraduate and graduate students under the direction and supervision of: 

Drs. Anibal Gutierrez, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Melissa Hale, Ph.D., BCBA-D, and Elaine Española, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Behavioral Consultations Program (BCP) offers comprehensive behavior plans for inappropriate behaviors (e.g., aggression, self-injury, elopement) and other disruptive behaviors (e.g., task refusal, tantrums, throwing). Behavior plans entail a compressive behavior assessment, an individualized behavior plan and parent training. Consultations have a strong emphasis on parent involvement and parent training. Follow up consultations are available but in most cases are not necessary.

Eligibility Criteria: Consultations are available to everyone.
