About Our Program
McRory Pediatric Services, Inc. is dedicated to improving the lives of children with autism spectrum disorder. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts have extensive training and experience in Applied Behavior Analysis, with an emphasis on Verbal Behavior Methodology. Our behavior therapists are hand selected and subscribe to the same teaching philosophies. We strongly believe that working as a team enhances our ability to assist a child in reaching their utmost potential.
School Based Services
As a non-public agency through the California State Department of Education, McRory Pediatric Services, Inc. partners with many local school districts to provide behavior support services to children within their school setting. Through the use of individual behavior support plans our therapists work to ameliorate any problem behaviors so that the leaner can fully access their school curriculum. Behavior therapists additionally work with students to increase compliance, social skills, attention to task, and communication.
Home & Community Based Services
Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts and behavior therapists work with children and their families 1:1 within the home and community as necessary to ensure generalization of skills across settings. Our ABA services are designed to eliminate maladaptive behaviors and teach new skills, as well as to provide parent training and education. We make use of scientifically validated methods, based upon the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and make use of Skinner's analysis of verbal behavior. We incorporate the teaching methods of Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) and Natural Environment Teaching (NET). Our curriculum is based off of the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) (Sundberg, 2008), and the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills - Revised Edition (ABLLS-R) (Partington, 2006).
