The Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC) , in collaboration with other members of the treatment team, designs and directs the implementation of a behavior modification intervention plan which is individualized to each child or adolescent and to family needs. The Behavioral Specialist Consultant identifies behavioral goals and intervention techniques, and recommends non-aversive behavioral change methods. While maintaining some direct contact with child and family, the Behavior Specialist Consultant primarily provides assessment such as program design and monitoring rather than direct therapy. The Behavioral Specialist Consultant is expected to participate in Inter-Agency Service Planning Team (ISPT) meetings. When questions or conflict around behavioral paradigms arise in other systems, such as school or other community, the BSC may participate as a consultant in special child-centered, family focused meetings along with the therapist.
