Our consultative service is designed to be individualized to meet the needs of each individual referred to Cornerstone. The process involves conducting a comprehensive Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), developing of a Behavior Support Plan, and training of the individual and team members on the intervention strategies in the plan.
We focus on spending time getting to know you and understand the presenting problems. Our behavior plans are person-centered and based on goals established with the team for each individual. Our consultants use “out of the box” thinking when developing intervention strategies, though they are always based on the functional assessment and sound Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles. We assist teams to collect data in ways that are least intrusive and revise strategies based on the data collected.
Let us work with your team to reduce challenging behaviors and build functional/adaptive behaviors. Please see our referral page to make a referral. Contact us if you have any questions.
Discover how the BASS assessment can evaluate individuals with behaviors associated with six areas of sexuality, including Personal Skills, Relationships and Boundaries, Society and Culture, Sexual Behavior, Internet Awareness, and Sexual Health. This assessment is designed for individuals diagnosed with Intellectual Disability (ID), Autism, and those with a dual diagnosis of ID and mental health conditions.
Our comprehensive assessment results in the implementation of a Skill Development and Behavior Support Plan, designed to enhance your knowledge of sexuality and reduce the frequency of undesired sexual behaviors.
