Strive Behavioral Intervention
Strive Behavioral Intervention provides therapy that utilizes the science of applied behavioral analysis and the principles of learning theory. Strive works with individuals and their families to increase identified skill deficits or delays and decrease undesired or problem behaviors. Skill acquisition goals often include language and communication, self-help skills, leisure and play skills, social skills, and safety skills. Undesired behaviors come in all shapes and sizes! These targets often include tantrums, whining/crying, elopement, hitting, biting, self-aggressing, and self-stimulation.
Strive works with a variety of individuals from various ages and different walks of life. We implement research-based interventions that have been proven effective, yet we know each person we service is his or her own person and his or her needs are specific and individualized.
