Fred Finch TBS behavior “coaches” work intensively with a participant in their home or in the community. The program requests authorization to provide services up to 20 hours a week. The needs of each participant guide the length and intensity of the program services they receive. The TBS coach designs, structures, models, and supports one-to-one interventions to modify target behaviors of concern or teach appropriate alternative behaviors, so that children and their family members or caregivers can live independently.


To sustain participants’ improvements after TBS concludes, staff develops transition plans to help each child and their caregivers.
