UNC-Chapel Hill researchers studied our treatment outcome data -- review their findings here
research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) on more than
300 individual treatment plans for children with Autism spectrum disorders, ADHD
and other conditions found the IBC treatment model for BHR services to be
associated with substantial behavioral change in children and worthy of further
The Institute for Behavior Change believes that treatment without outcome
measurement is most probably a waste of time and resources. Treatment
funded by Medical Assistance (Medicaid) and other public monies must
be subject to ongoing outcome testing to justify the public's expenditure of
funding. The Institute for Behavior Change is proud to say that we
have been conducting this outcome research on our delivery of EPSDT
"Behavioral Health Rehabilitation" (BHR) services since 1997.
The following is a summary of our most recent research. 583 treatment records of children with deteriorating behavioral
profiles between 2002 and 2007 were reviewed and
our model for Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) treatment programs demonstrated 79% overall effectiveness as
measured by parents' reports of progress after just
four months of treatment.
Between 74% and
82% effectiveness (actual reduction of target behavior or stabilization of
deteriorating behavior patterns) was demonstrated in each of the following five
behavioral domains between 2002 and 2007, based on outcome data taken from
parents on a weekly basis for 583 four-month treatment periods.
