A Friendly Face
AFF is a provider of Applied Behavior Analysis, practicing in all five boroughs of New York City and some areas of New Jersey. We have four physical locations for our treatment/social skills/practicum centers in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Bayonne NJ.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is one of the most present and prevalent developmental disabilities in the United States.
The family here at A Friendly Face understands how difficult and frustrating it can be to find the help that parents need for a child. For those not familiar with Applied Behavior Analysis, we use the science of observing, defining, and analyzing behavior to create treatment plans which will promote pro-social behaviors in children having difficulties in the realm of the social and behavioral.
Our main goal is to provide families with children on the Autism Spectrum with highly skilled and trained behavior professionals to help whole family to acclimate to a life of loving and caring for someone on the Autism Spectrum.
Our clinical staff, which is comprised of Board Certified Behavior Analysts, Registered Behavioral Therapists is more than willing to be where patients need us to be. For the past few years, our clinical team members have been traveling to the homes, schools, and classrooms of children on the Autism Spectrum to use the methodologies of Applied Behavior Analysis. We provide services in following languages: French, Spanish, English, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Arabic and Greek.
We also have specially designed four Autism Treatment Centers (in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Bayonne NJ) in which hold Social Skills Groups, Individual ABA sessions, free of charge Family Training, Sibling Support Groups, ASD Teen Groups and much more. At these centers, we offer music therapy, arts therapy, occasional pet interaction therapy, EASE Arts therapy (which combines art, theater, music, and movement), yoga, read alouds, and more!
A Friendly Face accepts most all major health insurance plans that cover ABA therapy and Child Health + Plans.
We can also offer workshops/presentations for parents at any physical location or we can offer a webinar for parents. We do a lot of presentations at school in Brooklyn and Staten Island. Typically, parents ask us to cover how to recognize the function of maladaptive behaviors and what interventions can be used to treat such behaviors.
