Behavioral Interventions Inc celebrated 20 years of service in August 2019! We've been pleased to have been able to help over 200 people with developmental disabilities during the past two decades. 

Behavioral Interventions Inc provides personal, professional, hands-on training and assessment to anyone dealing with challenging behaviors. One of our professionals will visit the site(s), do an assessment, and then develop a written behavioral support plan to address the identified behavioral challenges. We then train the individuals involved in the person's life on how to implement these methods to reduce the undesired behaviors. We then provide on-going monitoring, training, and consultation to ensure that progress is being made.  

We serve the Indiana counties of: Blackford, Cass, Decatur, Delaware, Fayette, Grant, Hamilton, Hancock, Henry, Howard, Jay, Madison, Miami, Randolph, Rush, Shelby, Tipton, and Wayne. 

We specialize in treating adults, teens, and children with intellectual disabilities, Autism spectrum disorder, ADD, TBI, mental illness, Fragile X, CHARGE syndrome, Down syndrome, and other developmental disabilities. We strive to help individuals and their teams build behavioral balance. 

We train staff, parents, teachers, professionals, and anyone needing behavior management skills. We are an Indiana Medicaid Waiver provider for the CIH and FS waivers.
