Complex Behavior Disorders Clinic

The Complex Behavior Disorders Clinic provides expert assessment and treatment of problem behaviors in children, adolescents and adults with a broad range of developmental and intellectual disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and neurogenetic syndromes such as Prader-Willi syndrome, fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Patients in our clinic are among the hardest cases to treat, and are among the most underserved in our community. Our treatment approach is to identify the underlying reason for problem behaviors, which commonly include social-environmental factors. Our clinic uses developmentally sensitive and evidence-based approaches based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
