The Carbone Clinic was founded by Dr Carbone to provide quality Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) services to persons with autism and related disabilities. Dr Carbone and his colleagues have treated thousands of children and adults with autism, varying degrees of disability.
We provide evidence-based behaviour analytic services to learners through the arrangement of positive teaching environments. The learner will continue to develop language and other important skills in their typical school, community and family settings.
The Carbone Clinic is founded on the vision that individuals
affected by autism and other developmental disabilities have the right to effective education and
behavioural services. Regardless of age, diagnosis, skills or barriers which impact day-to-day
functioning, every learner is capable of learning new skills and increasing degrees of independence
to allow an improved quality of life for the learner and their family.
Every learner is unique, and their ABA program should be individualised to account for specific needs, interests and motivation. Reducing barriers to learning and programming skill acquisition are prioritised by importance to the learner.
A competent and experienced Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) should oversee ABA programs. Involvement commences with a comprehensive assessment utilising assessment and curriculums most appropriate to the learner. Evaluation may include assessment of communication and social skills, problem behaviour reduction, academic skills as well as other important daily functioning skills.
The outcome of assessment is an individualised education plan (IEP) and outline of effective teaching procedures derived from peer reviewed empirical evidence that incorporates the principles of the science of behaviour analysis including Skinners Analysis of Verbal Behavior.
Generalising skills acquired through instruction across environments (home, nursery, school, college, community) and people (family, teacher, care providers) can lead to an improvement in the quality of life for all.
ABA programs are data driven to reliably account for and demonstrate changes in behaviour and progress. Visual displays through graphing will allow the BCBA supervising the program to review progress and make data-based decisions regarding any required programming changes.
Our guiding principles are established from these qualities.
