Welcome! A and J Behavioral Health or AJB was created to serve the families that need the most help! We understand that having a child with a developmental disability is a challenge and a blessing. We are here to help your child grow and prosper as you envision! We provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) based therapy for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder and other similar developmental disabilities. We understand your struggles and that is why our programs are individualized to your family’s needs. We are here to help guide you every step of the way! Teaching you how to help your child in your home/community is our joy! AJB also offers private classes for new parents on several topics that include, but are not limited to, sleep training, behavioral issues, toilet training, anxiety reduction for parents/caregivers, and teaching language acquisition in the natural environment.
We accept nearly all health insurance companies for payment serving the greater NY area! Additionally, soon we will be serving children in the Committee for Preschool Education program (CPSE program, 3 to 5 year olds) and Committee for Special Education program (CSE program, 5 to 21 years olds). Please call (646) 327-2723 to schedule your free advisory appointment. We are here to help!
At AJB we believe…….
1) Every child is unique, and therefore the strategies we use to help each child and their family is individualized.
2) Learning is fun and should not feel like work at a young age! We make every child feel special as they are learning and prospering with the family.
3) Skills taught must be functional for the child and family.
4) Teaching in the child’s natural environment with the family as a team promotes generalization (true learning) for the child and the family.
5) AJB works with children of all ages and conducts psychological evaluations for diagnosis, if the parent requests. At AJB we believe learning is limitless like your child.
At AJB we use a team approach to therapy. We know that every family’s needs may be different; therefore, we use our experience of over 15 years as behavior analysts and provide the best professional direction and guidance while working collaboratively with you, the family. Our ultimate goal is to better your child’s life and yours.
