Are you ready for the new school year!? All of us here at San Diego Behavior Solutions have been working hard to formulate the perfect tailored sessions to prepare your child for their academic return in the Fall. In order to accommodate caregivers’ busy schedules, we have released new In-Home appointment services and availabilities. 

It is our philosophy to meet you where you are. Even literally! In addition to traditional office sessions, we offer in-home, school-based, & telehealth services. Wherever we meet, let’s find the answers.

San Diego Behavior Solutions provides in-home and in-office behavioral health services to improve social skills and support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, and other social and behavioral challenges.

Meet Nicolette! 

Nicolette is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who has over 6 years of experience in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. She utilizes behavior-analytic techniques to support children, parents, and families to make meaningful changes and reach their family goals.

We are so excited to have Nicolette on our team as a behavior interventionist! In addition to direct intervention and skills training with children, Nicolette also provides: 

  • 1:1 Behavioral Modification with Child
  • 1:1 Observation
  • Functional Behavioral Assessment
  • Social Skills Training
  • In-Home Behavior Intervention
  • In-person Academic Support
  • Parent and caregiver enrichment allows families to foster the growth and development of their children in natural settings in day-to-day life.

Nicolette specializes in several empirically- validated approaches that are incorporated into each child’s individualized plan.

Principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) provide the fundamental basis of many of our intervention programs, however, we do not adhere to a strict ABA programmatic approach. 

Our unique approach allows us to provide a highly customized and tailored approach to each child and family we serve, which allows us to maximize each child’s unique developmental potential.

We strive to provide these services in a caring manner that stimulates, engages and motivates children to embrace learning by addressing their individual needs in their own familiar environments. The specific strategies used in each child’s program will vary based on their individual needs and abilities. We also strongly recommend families take advantage of our parent coaching sessions, to allow parents to gain the skills necessary to reinforce and accelerate their child’s progress in-between intervention sessions.

The overarching mission of our in-home and in-office behavioral health services is to build on each child’s strengths and innate gifts to allow them to overcome challenges and achieve their maximum developmental, social, and emotional potential.
