Treatment and Interventions
Applied behavior analysis is available through the center. This empirically-supported therapy focuses on improving specific behaviors, such as disruptive and aggressive behaviors, social skills, communication, reading, academics, adaptive learning skills and many other behaviors children and youth need for success. Our clinicians also offer individual, family and group therapy for maximizing the academic success and social, emotional and behavioral functioning of children, teens and young adults. This includes providing parent training classes for individual parents and groups.

- Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

All diagnostic assessments can be used for special education eligibility evaluations, as specified in the Oklahoma Policies and Procedures in Special Education guidelines.
