ABA is a set of rigorous, data-driven practices ground in over 40 years of peer-referred evidence in the treatment of disordered behavior and skill deficits. Currently ABA is prevalent in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders but is also a critical component of successful intervention in traumatic brain injury, disruptive and oppositional behavior disorders and intellectual and developmental disabilities. *Standards of Practice for Applied Behavior Analysis in Minnesota, Prepared by the Minnesota Northland Association for Behavior Analysts (09/2012)

Employee Testimonials:

|

“I chose to work for Behavioral Dimensions because I did not want to stop growing. I knew their client outcomes were incredible and I wanted to learn how to provide the most effective ABA therapy so clients I served would in turn reach their fullest potential. BCBAs need leaders with greater expertise and credentials than we do so we can continue to grow clinically. BDI does not cut corners; they do whatever it takes to ensure clients make the most significant progress possible and this entails leaders making daily sacrifices. Each child and staff is viewed through the lens “the sky is the limit.” People stay with honest leaders who support them and all staff at each level. Behavioral Dimensions’ has many staff who have stayed for 10+ years. If you want to change lives forever in a supportive environment, Behavioral Dimensions is the place.”

Lisa, MS, BCBA

“The best part of my job is watching the progress of the kids. I have the unique perspective of observing this progress both daily and over time. I love watching the kids generalize things they have learned to their natural environment.

Another aspect of this work that warms my heart is when a parent tells me a story about how their child is using a new skill such as using words to communicate instead of tantrums for example. These are among the many reasons why I enjoy working at Behavioral Dimensions. Thank you!”

Barbara Szypulski

“One of the most rewarding parts in working with Behavioral Dimensions is teaching such incredible kiddos and seeing all of their progress they make every day. It is a joy to be involved in the journey and growth of each child as they learn and generalize language skills, establish positive relationships with family members/peers, work through challenges, and succeed in the community.

Behavioral Dimensions has an amazing team of staff who are caring and passionate about working with children and their families. They are an extremely supportive company committed to providing high quality services across all clients, as well as a positive work place for their employees. Behavioral Dimensions has provided me with the training to develop as a professional and gain knowledge to best support our clients.”

Lindsay Kitner,
Program Implementation Manager

“I love that laughing and playing are normal parts of my work day. It’s a great feeling to see parents notice their child’s progress. I’ve been known to get a little teary eyed right along with a mom or dad when their child is able to do something they hadn’t expected.”

Jodie Johnson, 
Senior Therapist
