 Sprouts offers Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Services to children with  autism, developmental delays, and other challenging behaviors. Our  commitment to meaningful, long-term  progress in the life of every  child we work with is evident through our small case loads and highly  individualized programming that is continually modified to meet each  child's changing needs. Our family-focused approach allows us to  actively collaborate with parents about our goals for  their child both in and out of the home and then to give them the tools  needed to achieve those goals.

***Behavioral Intervention Resources

  Our clinic, Behavior Intervention Resources, LLC is located in Lake  Charles, Louisiana and has been in practice since July 2012. We  primarily see children with Autism and Developmental Delays, as well as  other diagnoses that Autism has been proven to be effective with (which  can include a WIDE variety of diagnoses). We provide Applied Behavior  Analysis (ABA) Therapy in our clinic setting (and in some circumstances,  home and school settings as well). We accept private insurance,  Medicaid, and private pay. With our services, children get one on one  guidance, assessments, and individualized treatment plans and goals.  These goals may include a focus on social skills, early learner skills,  academic skills, instruction following, gross and fine motor,  communication and language skills, decreasing problematic behavior, etc.  For children of school age, we work on school readiness, and  collaborate with their schools to address any difficulties they may be  having and work to target them for generalization to the school  environment. We also provide parent/caregiver training at least once a  month that targets their child's specific goals and progress,  implementing our treatment plans outside of the home, etc. Once monthly,  we also have a large meeting where all caregivers and parents are  invited to sit in on a training involving principles of ABA, helpful  information for parents/caregivers, etc. Our clinic offers training for  schools and their teachers as well to educate them on Autism, helpful  techniques and knowledge for their classroom, etc.
