BEHAVIORAL FITNESS (BFit) PROGRAM

CSS's Behavioral Program is designed to support individuals exhibiting behaviors that are adversely affecting their daily routines. We are committed to the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis and Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports.

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Services

First Steps Services - ABA services are provided to children in Southwest Missouri through the First Steps Program. ABA is one of the 17 Early Intervention Services provided for children from birth to three years old who were born with a diagnosed condition associated with developmental disabilities, or who have a developmental delay or disability. This voluntary program provides families with the tools they need to help their child be successful in participating in family and community life and is the “first step” to preparing children to enter school and become successful adults.

CSS ABA Services - Our BFit Field Consultants specialize in children and adults with behavior disorders caused by a variety of developmental disabilities including autism. We work with families in diverse settings and in partnership with many service providers and members of an individual’s support team. Techniques can be used in structured situations such as a classroom lesson as well as in “everyday” situations such as family dinnertime or the neighborhood playground.

BFit Center

The BFit Center will support individuals in crisis as an alternative to acute care hospitals and emergency rooms. It is a safe and secure environment where trained staff and an individual can focus on why the BFit Center’s services were necessary and what can be done to prevent future behaviors of concern. The BFit Center is available 24/7, 365 days a year and the individuals’ stay is 8 to 23 hours to ensure the best outcomes and quick stabilization.
