WELCOME TO APEX BEHAVIOR CONSULTING
Enhancing quality of life for people of all abilities
Since 2010, Apex Behavior Consulting has been enhancing quality of life for people of all abilities by providing services guided by the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Positive Behavior Support (PBS). We are an Utah owned and operated small business providing services in Salt Lake, Weber, Davis and Utah Counties.
Applying for services is the best way for us to assess your needs, determine if our services are appropriate or possible.
We use the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and the philosophy of Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) to make meaningful behavior change. Our programs are individualized and focus on addressing skills and behaviors that are important to areas of everyday life. Our services can help people with language, social interaction, wellness habits, self care, toileting, eating, sleeping, education, employment, self-regulations, intimate relationships, independent living, to name just a few.
Over the past 50 years, ABA has been documented in thousands of peer-reviewed studies in areas such as the treatment of Autism and Intellectual Disabilities, Education, Health and Fitness, Behavioral Gerontology, Abuse Prevention, Sustainability, Treatment of Substance Abuse, and Brain Injury Rehabilitation. (BACB, 2022)
Our team comes to you. We provide services where they are needed most including home, community, employment and school settings.
ABA Therapy is a more intensive therapy that is provided through one-on-one individual therapy sessions and meetings with caregivers. Treatment depends on the specific needs of the individual, and each treatment program is tailored to what will be most effective for the individual.
A minimum of 9 hours of therapy is required per week to maximize outcomes but up to 40 hours per week has been found to be most effective for some individuals.
ABA Therapy can be effective for people with a variety of diagnosis. In 2014, Utah law mandated that insurance companies cover ABA Therapy as a treatment for people diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. If you need help getting a Autism Spectrum Diagnosis, refer to this Autism Evaluation Provider List
