Who Are We?
We are Opya! We re on a big mission to help children with Autism reach their full potential. We do this by connecting evidence-based autism therapies, primarily ABA, with the latest technologies. Our passionate team of amazing people is dedicated to achieving therapeutic goals while improving the Autism care experience for our clients. We care deeply for our clients, their families, and our team members, and are also contributors to the Autism community.
What is a Behavior Technician?
Behavior Technicians work independently under the supervision of our amazing team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), and Speech and Occupational Therapists to help our clients with Autism. They work in homes, daycare settings, and schools to provide individualized play-based therapies that help children learn to improve their social interactions and communication, and to better their ability to take care of themselves.
Behavior Therapies can be something like showing a child the steps needed to tie their own shoelaces or wash their hands. Or helping them to communicate better with the people around them. The ultimate goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning. Our goal is for our clients to reach their full potential and transition to a school setting through our clinically excellent Autism care.
