Touchstone Health Services Behavior Analytic Services programs provide evidence-based assessment and treatment grounded in the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Specifically, our expertise focuses on individuals with developmental disabilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorders who display skill deficits and/or problem behaviors.
The Behavior Analytic Services division will be split into four parts all working simultaneously together. These programs include our current Family-Centered Autism Program, The Autism Center of Excellence, Complex Behavior, and the Language and Learning Center.
The Family-Centered Autism Program (FCAP) has been a part of Touchstone’s programs and services since 2009. FCAP provides integrated and comprehensive treatment services, in the natural environment, to children, and their families affected by ASD and other developmental disabilities. The goal of FCAP is improving the lives of both children with autism and their family members. This goal is achieved by focusing on functional skills with the use of evidenced-based behavior analytic procedures such as pivotal response training and positive reinforcement.
In partnership with Mercy Care Plan and Mercy Maricopa, working together to ensure that children, youth, and adults with ASD have the opportunity to use the Center of Excellence as their behavioral and physical health provider. Touchstone provides a specialized whole-health approach that focuses on the physical and behavioral health of children, families, and adults living with or at risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
The Complex Behavior Program will focus on the assessment and treatment of problematic behaviors that serve as a barrier to safety, independence, and success. Grounded in Behavior Analysis, the scientific study of the principles of learning and behavior.
Touchstone’s Behavior Analytic Services division will be based out of our North Center Located at 3602 E. Greenway Rd., Suite 102, Phoenix, AZ 85032 (36th Street & Greenway Road). All of our centers are integrated in order to provide any and all services from all of our locations and within the community.
