About A and J Behavioral Health
A and J Behavioral Health was created to serve the families that need the most help! We understand that having a child with a developmental disability is a challenge and a blessing. We are here to help your child grow and prosper as you envision! We provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) based therapy for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder and other similar developmental disabilities. We understand your struggles and that is why our programs are individualized to your family’s needs. We are here to help guide you every step of the way! Teaching you how to help your child in your home/community is our joy! A and J Behavioral Health also offers private classes for new parents on several topics that include, but are not limited to, sleep training, behavioral issues, toilet training, anxiety reduction for parents/caregivers, and teaching language acquisition in the natural environment.
We accept nearly all health insurance companies for payment serving the greater NY area! Additionally, soon we will be serving children in the Committee for Preschool Education program (CPSE program, 3 to 5 year olds) and Committee for Special Education program (CSE program, 5 to 21 years olds). Please call to schedule your free advisory appointment. We are here to help!
At AJB we believe:
1) Every child is unique, and therefore the strategies we use to help each child and their family is individualized.
2) Learning is fun and should not feel like work at a young age! We make every child feel special as they are learning and prospering with the family.
3) Skills taught must be functional for the child and family.
4) Teaching in the child’s natural environment with the family as a team promotes generalization (true learning) for the child and the family.
5) AJB works with children of all ages and conducts psychological evaluations for diagnosis, if the parent requests. At AJB we believe learning is limitless like your child.
At A and J Behavioral Health we use a team approach to therapy. We know that every family’s needs may be different; therefore, we use our experience of over 15 years as behavior analysts and provide the best professional direction and guidance while working collaboratively with you, the family. Our ultimate goal is to better your child’s life and yours.
AJB provides in home and in the community one-on-one therapeutic services by the most highly trained professionals based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Verbal Behavior (VB) with an emphasis on:
- Family training
- Behavior modification programs
- Social and daily living skills programs
A and J Behavioral Health takes a whole family therapeutic approach to helping your family. We believe that the family’s involvement in the therapy with AJB is the key to success for your child. We believe in striving to work with the entire family to instill harmony and balance to enhance the overall sense of well-being for all. All of us at AJB believe in creating an individualized functional program for your child to integrate seamlessly into your daily lives.
Recently my insurance company was attacking A and J Behavioral. My child has received flawless services from A and J for over 2 years and my child Ava has been massively improving. At 5 years old she is finally potty trained and can answer questions. Before A and J Ava didn’t speak at all. So when my insurance company was attacking A and J for several years and chased them out of network I felt horrible for them since they are probably not going to be paid over a million dollars because of my insurance company. All the employees at A and J Behavioral walked me through the process of using them as an out of network provider. Thank goodness I still have my therapist from A and J Behavioral!!
I took my son in for an evaluation based on the recommendation of his teacher. We met with the doctor who inquired about the behaviors we and his teacher had been noticing. After meeting with him, a sweet woman came to help put together what they call a treatment plan. Overall, the evaluation gave me a sense of relief, knowing my son was going to get help. We recently were assigned a teacher who comes 2-3 times a week. She works directly with my son. And he loves her! We are thinking of adding a weekend date, as we are already seeing the benefits of this therapy. Making the choice to get help and see this agency was the best thing I think I could have done for my little guy. Looking forward to continuing!
I don’t know what to say. The bcba and therapist taught my child how to maintain eye contact and respond to her name. I couldn’t be more thrilled. They are the best!:)))
As a mother of a child that had fairly obvious issues to me but yet was not obvious to many health practitioners before I came to A and J Behavioral Health. A and J recognized the issues and formulated a detailed plan to help. We have been with A and J for only a few months, but my daughter has made great progress! Thank you for listening and helping !
My wife and I were going from pediatrician to neurologist to psychologist and we had no answers on how to help our youngest daughter. All Of the supposed doctors said “there is nothing wrong with her” but my wife and I knew better. Once we called A and J we realized they were pediatric child specialists that could help us. Pediatricians are only interested in passing you on to a neurologist who truly doesn’t know anything about mental health. They wanted to put our daughter on medication and we couldnt figure out why since she was not aggressive. We refused to put her on medication since she didn’t need it. The neurologist just said this medication will make her less anxious. I wasn’t sure she was anxious or just didn’t know how to behave or function in society. Since starting with A and J a couple of months ago we have seen a dramatic improvement. The Senior staff is helping educate and train us as well to help her on a daily basis. She is starting to interact more and seems happier. Thank you so much :))
The therapists have been so professional and caring. This has been a difficult time for me and my family. In 2013 my child was diagnosed with a disability and everyone at A and J has helped us cope and help Mylie develop social skills. I can’t help but say the greatest things about A and J! They are the best!
I can't say enough about the caring staff. A year ago my son was not able to attend school because he was very disruptive and now he is a model student. Thank you to all at A and J Behavioral Health!!
Insurance company nightmare
Very recently an insurance company was attacking A and J Behavioral Health and threatening the ABA service that my child was receiving. Therefore, I was patient as A and J guided me to out of network status so that my 3 year old can continue with the same therapist. I realize now that insurance companies train the employees that answer the phone to sound so calm and nice but their super ordinates have essentially trained them to lie to the parents with no shame or remorse. Thank g-d A and J is there to explain everything and continue the services. I won’t name the insurance company but I am going to my union to complain as my insurance is disgusting. A and J and my family shouldnt have these problems.
Excellent quality therapists.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. They are so nice and caring! From the moment I called I knew I was in good hands! Even the receptionist was nice. My child is doing much better and is starting to socialize much much more !! Thank you so much A and J Behavioral Health
The Best Agency
My daughter was having issues with her social and communication from an early age, but I ignored the issues as everyone told me she would grow out of it. Finally when I realized 2 years passed and she did not improve I called my insurance company and they recommended A and J Behavioral Health. It was the best phone call I have ever made. My daughter is doing much better now because of my BCBA and the therapist from A and J Behavioral Health!!
As a young mother of 2 young boys I knew in my heart they were not developing typically. I know I needed help. Therefore, I reached out to my neighborhood company that said they could help. My phone call to the director at A and J Behavioral Health was the best phone call I could have made for my family. The boys are getting daily help from the caring and dedicated therapists at A and J Behavioral Health paid for my health insurance. Thank you A and J Behavioral Health!!
Best caring services!!!
Great people! They handled and addressed all of my insurance related items, then listened carefully during the assessment process, and gave my child a very caring and great family trainer. I could not be happier. My child is now talking and following directions!!!
