Our Approach
Garner Behavior Services, LLC follows applied behavior analytic principles and procedures in all services.  Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a science that studies behavior change.  A vital component of behavior change is the environment, this includes the setting and other people (therapists, teachers, parents, etc).  The field of ABA views behaviors as learned, and therefore by changing the environment, one can change behavior.

Our ABA intensive interventions start with assessment, ie, identifying the customer's strengths and weaknesses, building on strengths, and making learning fun and exciting but structured and data driven.

Trainings and workshops are available on many topics for inservice days, facilities, schools, and private parties.

Supervision  is conducted in accordance with BACB regulations.

All of our services are research based and data driven, with compassion, interest in the customer, and fun.
