WELCOME TO MESTRE BEHAVIOR DEVELOPMENT
What We Do Mestre Behavior Development provides Applied Behavior Analysis services to children affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder and related diagnoses.
Our services are provided in the South Florida community, both in our early intervention clinic as well as in homes. We also offer social skills training groups, toilet training, parent training and additional services to support children with developmental or behavioral challenges.
ABA Therapy It is estimated that 1 in 110 children is affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder and 1 in 4 of those are boys. ABA therapy is the only therapy with over 30 years of research proving its effectiveness with children diagnosed with Autism.
Therapists at Mestre Behavior Development implement ABA programs, focusing on skill acquisition and the reduction of problem behavior. We emphasize verbal behavior in our skill acquisition programs to teach language and functional communication, self-help skills, social skills, play skills, and compliance behavior.
How We Can Help Your Child We offer a COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION to all new families, providing you with information about our program model and answering any questions you may have about ABA therapy. Together, we determine what your child needs from the services we provide and we determine the next step in his or her care.
