In-home Behavioral Health Treatment (BHT)

The Bright Future Program provides Behavioral Health Treatment (BHT) services to children and adolescents 3-22 years of age diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Medically necessary BHT services are also available to children exhibiting behavioral challenges in the home, regardless of diagnosis. Evidence-based interventions, based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), are used to address the core deficits of ASD, address problem behaviors, and teach critical skills in the home and community.

Parental Involvement

Ongoing parental involvement is a cornerstone of the program. Parent consultation and coaching is provided so that newly acquired skills can be used throughout the day. Family priorities are identified, and individual progress is reviewed on a regular basis.

Bright Future Program

Qualified Staff

Bright Future Behavior Consultants are comprised of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), Board Certified Associate Behavior Analysts (BCaBAs), and Qualified Autism Service Providers.
