Date:7/16/2014

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Individuals on the Autism spectrum face unique challenges in areas like language, socialization, sensory integration and some levels of cognition. No two individuals on the Autism spectrum will face the same combination of challenges. Therefore, it is important for the treatment of these challenges be individualized to fit the specific needs and goals of the person in need.

The scientific community has noted that one of the most effective treatments for individuals on the Autism spectrum is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Applied Behavior Analysis is a discipline that seeks to understand and improve the behavior of individuals by developing custom treatment programs that fit the skill deficits of the person in need. "ABA works by systematically changing behavior based on principles of learning derived from behavioral psychology, that encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative behaviors" - Autism Science Foundation. It is through this practice that new skills are acquired and maladaptive behaviors are reduced, both working together to foster the success and independence of the individual.

Behavioral Foundations, LLC (behavioralfoundations.com) is a new private service provider for East Tennessee offering ABA services to individuals of all ages and abilities. Driven by data oriented programs based on ABA principles, Behavioral Foundations seeks to improve the lives of those in need of behavioral or education support in the Knoxville area. Further, all programs are developed and monitored by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), Dr. Melissa Switzer.

Dr. Switzer obtained her graduate degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. Having held the assistant licensure of Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst for eight years while completing her Doctoral coursework, she has over thirteen years of education and experience in the field of ABA based Autism treatment. After completing her PhD in Psychology, Dr. Switzer went on to broaden her experience base serving in residential, center-based and home-based ABA programs in the Dallas area for the last five years. Dr. Switzer and her family have recently relocated to the Knoxville area, upon which she opened Behavioral Foundations, LLC. It is Dr. Switzer's mission to offer Autism and ABA services to local families and individuals in need of behavioral or educational support here in East Tennessee.
