About Turning Point Education Services, Inc.
Turning Point Education Services, Inc. was founded by a behavior analyst in Annapolis, Maryland in 2012. Since this time, we have grown and now provide services in multiple cities throughout Maryland and Florida.
Our goal is to provide the most effective behavior analytic therapy services to children on the autism spectrum while bringing awareness to autism and, most importantly, simply having fun. We desire to see learning occur in all children as we set up environments where learning takes place naturally as curiosity is sparked and imagination soars. We believe strongly in the power of hands-on play to grow healthy, strong children.
As we seek to provide an environment for all children to learn and grow, we also lay a foundation that allows us to provide more effective ABA therapy. Our Vision: a play space that is themed to spark collaborative play while simultaneously providing a therapeutic platform for us to more efficiently address the needs of the children with autism. It is a win for the community as a whole. It allows for fun, creative, hands-on play for children. It takes them away from staring at the screens of computers and televisions and into a world where they can play, create, imagine and socially interact as they engage with one another in our CITY. Our first city will be in our Annapolis clinic and we hope to grow.
Creating caring, positive places for growth and socially significant behavioral changes in every child
Functional Behavior Assessment - Studying a person’s behavior is important because the behavior always serves a purpose for that person and knowing that purpose helps us determine not only appropriate interventions, but more importantly, interventions that will be effective. An FBA incorporates a wide variety of techniques and procedures with the aim of determining the function (or purpose) for a given behavior. The techniques and procedures are data driven, meaning the resulting hypothesis regarding the function of behavior is not subjective, but rather based on concrete data.
Behavioral Consult - Working with families, schools, day care centers and other providers such as SLPs, OT and PT professionals who also work with children with autism or other related disabilities.
Behavior Plan Development - Once the function of the behavior(s) are determined, a detailed and tailored plan is written specifically for that individual. This plan includes a background information, defined targeted behaviors for decrease (or increase as warranted), targeted skills for acquisition and/or increase, protocols (proactive and reactive) to address the behaviors targeted for decrease, teaching methods for addressing the skill acquisition, recommended hours of ABA therapy.
Supervision - Specifically for RBTs, BCaBAs or others pursuing or interested in pursuing certification or licensure in the field.
Direct Therapy - Therapy based on our individualized and tailored treatment plans in a clinic, home or school-based setting.
