Mission Statement

Sage Behavior Services is committed to effective implementation of research-validated behavioral procedures to strengthen the socially significant behaviors of children, families, professionals, and organizations. The principles of applied behavior analysis are used to support environments to achieve generalization and maintenance of behavior change.

 

Sage Behavior Services emphasizes the use of positive behavior intervention strategies and minimally intrusive interventions to help children become successful and independent participants in their communities. Each program is tailored to the specific needs of every individual we serve.

We emphasize the creation of a positive learning environment for the child — one that fosters development across skill areas and that can be maintained by the other significant individuals in places which the child learns. A strong rapport between your child and your child’s team is crucial in establishing learning opportunities and maximizing the effectiveness of interventions. Our staff strive to create a positive learning environment, which can be observed in a child who welcomes the arrival of staff by initiating interactions, communication, and play.

Sage Behavior Services strives for long-term generalization and maintenance of behavior change. Services are provided in the clients’ natural environments to increase independence and participation. Sage also collaborates closely with significant individuals such as family members, peers, and teachers to teach functional behaviors and skills necessary for children to learn and thrive in their own communities.
