The Autism Family Support Services Team . . .
Autism Family Support Services is a family centered organization located in Maryland. AFSS was founded by Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Certified Special Educators in response to the over 8,000 children and adults diagnosed with Autism in the state of Maryland. Although organizations in Maryland provide services to people with Autism and their families, few offer Applied Behavior Analysis from Board Certified Professionals. What should I look for in an ABA provider?
Our primary goal is to improve the client’s ability to function in the home and community. AFSS maintains a climate of high expectation for our clients while helping them explore new avenues of possibility. We maintain small caseloads in order to provide each client the attention necessary to be successful. This allows our staff to deliver services in a variety of settings including in the home, community, and school. Below are just a few of the services our team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Certified Special Educators offer:
- In Home Behavioral and Educational Consultation
- Functional Behavior Assessment
- Community Based Instruction
- Assessment of Language and Communication using the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP)
- Family Training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
- Supervision for those Seeking Certification in Behavior Analysis (BCBA / BCABA)
We believe all individuals with disabilities are entitled to the highest quality of service.
Autism Family Support Services is dedicated to providing all of our clients with exceptional care and state of the art treatment using evidence based practices. The effectiveness of all interventions is evaluated using clear and objective data. This ensures that decisions are based on actual, observable changes in the client’s behavior.
