BHW is committed to bringing out the best in behavior.

Individualized Outpatient Services

BHW’s Diagnostics Center recognizes that a proper diagnosis of developmental disorders requires a comprehensive evaluation completed by an experienced and qualified team of professionals. Our approach views diagnosis as the first step to effective intervention and treatment.


BHW specializes in diagnosing and treating the following conditions:
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder
  • Learning Disabilities

Memory Disorders Clients admitted to our program with a pre-existing formal diagnosis may require additional assessments in order to develop a proper individualized treatment plan.

Early Intervention Services for Children Under Three. BHW’s intensive ABA program for children under three involves a comprehensive global program that includes behavior, speech, and occupational therapy for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.


Home-Based Services for Individuals Over Three. Each individual works 1:1 with a behavioral therapist on prescribed goals derived from an intervention plan. We utilize research-based methods in therapy with the focus of generalizing skills across settings. Each session varies with the needs of the individual, but usually incorporates language acquisition, play skills, self-help skills, behavioral modification, and social skills trainings.


School-Based Services BHW’s positive behavior support program includes 1:1 behavior intervention in various school environments for a broad range of challenging behaviors such as aggression, elopement, self-injury, and tantrums. Our primary objectives are to improve academic performance; replace challenging behaviors by teaching appropriate behaviors; and increase communication, social, and coping skills. BHW believes that students have more to gain when all relevant providers, including the school team, work in harmony.

BHW is a UCLA PEERS certified provider

The UCLA Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relationship Skills (PEERS) is a manualized, social skills training intervention for adolescents and young adults. It has a strong evidence base for use with teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorders, but is also appropriate for teens and young adults with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other socioemotional problems.


PEERS is a 14-week evidence based social skills intervention for motivated teens in middle school or high school who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. During each group session, teens are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during real play activities (e.g., playing sports, board games, etc.).


Parents are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments. Enrollment is limited. Regular attendance is imperative. Parent participation is required.

Behavior Train, "Changing the World One Behavior at a Time"


Behavior Train is BHW’s volunteer program designed to identify and support individuals with disabilities who are overlooked and neglected in areas of the world where behavioral health services are not easily accessible, understood, or accepted. People with such disabilities are frequently exposed to human rights violations or secluded from the public, and lack appropriate health and educational services.


Therefore, BHW is dedicated to improving the quality of life and opportunities of such individuals by bringing awareness and providing resources such as conducting ABA trainings, donating financially, and supplying goods to those countries in need. Specifically, ABA trainings and ongoing support are generally delivered to parents, educators, physicians, and other care providers of individuals with disabilities.
