Applied Behavior Analysis in Brain Injury

We are currently seeking a full-time Behavior Analyst in our Creedmoor (Raleigh-Durham area), North Carolina program. To learn more about this position, click here.

Individuals with brain injuries display an array of problematic behaviors, such as impulsivity, disinhibition, lack of initiation, isolation, and aggression that impact their rehabilitation and recovery, as well as their ultimate readiness to return to home and/or the community. The occurrence and treatment of these behaviors is often complicated by impairments in cognition and self-awareness, as well as by co-occurring issues including substance abuse. These behaviors present a challenge to resources in the home and community, as well as many rehabilitation settings and, ultimately, home/community reintegration is a goal that can be both hazardous and difficult to attain. At ReMed in Partnership with Learning Services, we have worked with a complex and intensive neurobehavioral population for over 25 years, and have developed a treatment philosophy and methodology, rooted in behavior analysis, by which an interdisciplinary team can employ evidence-based behavioral practices and procedures to assess and promote behavioral stability.

We have presented our work at numerous professional conferences in brain injury and behavior analysis, and authored the chapter on neurobehavioral complications in the most recent essential brain injury guide. Our programs are committed to the use of trained and accredited behavior analysts, and in addition to employing BCBAs we recently trained our first class of RBT’s, which we are excited to expand upon, and we have served as a practicum supervision site to local universities for over 15 years.  Our behavioral team facilitates assessments, the development of behavior plans and strategies, and provides leadership to the team on behavioral issues. As part of a full rehabilitation team including physiatry; neuropsychiatry; physical, occupational, and speech therapy; psychology; addictions counseling; and case management, our behavior analysts address a broad range of behavior issues to determine the variables influencing and maintaining them, toward developing and implementing specific strategies and tools to promote safety and stability to optimize recovery and independence.
