Intro

The Clinical Department uses principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to decrease challenging behaviors and increase socially significant behaviors. We work on academic success using discrete trial training (DTT), task analysis, and incidental teaching; toilet training; feeding; pre-vocational and vocation skills; behavior management; functional communication; self- care skills; and social skills.

About the Department

The Clinical Department is comprised of:

Nikki M. Snizek, M.S., BCBA, LABA- Clinical Coordinator

Erika Majeskey, M.Ed., LABA, BCBA- Clinician

Katie Dollard, M.S- Clinical Assistant

 

Goals

The goal of the Clinical Department is to work on each student’s individual communication, behavioral, academic, self-care, social, and functional needs. We collaborate closely with all departments at CCCBSD to help each individual student reach their maximum potential. We strive to teach functional skills for each student so they can be as independent as possible in their daily lives.
