The primary mission of TBCG is to address the needs of ASD and PDD sufferers in their homes and communities (this includes the school setting) since this is where they spend the vast majority of their time. This work happens, first via culturally competent, comprehensive assessment, secondly via Caregiver Training & Support and Educator Training, administered by certified/licensed clinicians with specific expertise in ASD, behavior modification, and positive discipline techniques. Further, we espouse a tertiary emphasis on direct intervention with children and young adults administered by highly trained technicians, paraprofessionals. Finally, we will provide a continuum of care based on the “systems model” which will include assessment, case management, mental health therapy, psychoeducational supports, socio-emotional learning, community/peer support, habilitation, and advocacy. The aforementioned are not listed as such to reflect a ranked ordering, but rather to conceptualize the chronological order our clinicians and providers believe is necessary to provide the most benefit to our clients.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTIONS
CBI is based on the belief that behavior is mediated by cognitive processes. Learners are taught to examine their own thoughts and emotions, recognize when negative thoughts and emotions are escalating in intensity, and then use strategies to change their thinking and behavior.
EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING COACHING
EF is the set of self-management and organization skills that help people achieve goals. In order to effectively meet the challenges of school, work, and life, learners must be able to manage their emotions, focus their attention, organize and their work and effectively use their time. They must also have the mental and emotional dexterity to reflect upon and revise their tactics as contexts and situations change. Our goal is to help learners become more effective by teaching skills that can be generalized across a variety of settings and circumstances. Our coaches use the ABA skill acquisition models and behavior modification strategies in conjunction with real life situations from school or work as vehicles to build these Executive Function skills.
