Individualized in-home services to promote independence and enhance quality of life
Berkshire County Arc’s Autism Outreach Services Program offers insurance reimbursed in-home services for children and adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The AOS Program utilizes the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in the delivery of services. ABA is the science of behavior change. Research indicates ABA is the most effective way to increase skill acquisition and promote learning.
In parternship with families, Berkshire County Arc’s Autism Outreach Services provide clinical supports for children and adults diagnosed with ASD. The program works to increase skills, promote independence, and enhance quality of life. Our team of experienced clinicians with diverse expertise in the fields of ABA and ASD are dedicated to the progress and growth of each client we serve.
