Our Staff

The BIPS home office is located in Hempstead, NY, centrally located in Nassau County and close to the border of Queens. We provide empirically supported psychological and behavioral services to children with learning or behavioral challenges and their families.

Our employees all have training and experience in Applied Behavior Analysis. Several of our employees are NYS Licensed Behavior Analysts, and several of our paraprofessionals are completing coursework and experience hours toward licensure in ABA. We utilize this scientific problem solving approach to understand the social and environmental conditions that inhibit learning or contribute to problematic behavior. We then work with children, parents, and school personnel to find the most practical and effective approaches to improving performance and ameliorating problems while providing accountability to all parties by objectively measuring the outcomes of interventions.
