Home Services at Crossroads School:
Crossroads is a provider of school, home, and community consultative services for children and young adults with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. Our services are designed to promote independence within the school, home, and community, as well as train parents and guardians to promote independence and manage challenging behavior. All services are based upon the evidence-based principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Research shows ABA to be the most effective treatment for individuals with an ASD.
Our supervising staff members are Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) who are also Licensed Applied Behavior Analysts (LABA) and have a master’s degree (or higher) in Behavior Analysis. All supervisors have completed coursework, supervised field experience, and passed a competency-based examination. For the provision of direct treatment, Crossroads employees receive an intensive training sequence to prepare them for working independently in the community setting.
Our mission is to provide comprehensive school, home, and community services built upon the principles of ABA. We are dedicated to helping individuals acquire the communication, social, vocational, and life skills necessary to achieve their highest level of independence as adults. We believe that all individuals have a fundamental right to services that promote the greatest degree of personal independence.
