Join Our Waitlist


As practitioners, we believe that the newest research provides the best outcome. We are trained in both compassionate and effective methods to increase desirable skills, as well as to decrease behaviors that can interfere with an individual’s ability to learn, create relationships, and access their daily needs.


The goals we work on will prioritize the learner’s safety and dignity. We strive to make meaningful change in their lives, and in the lives of those around them.


We work closely with the learner, the family, school staff, and other professionals including but not limited to Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists, to ensure the learner receives well rounded support.


Each learner’s goals are based around what is important to them and their families, not just their assessment results. Assent is built into each session to ensure client dignity and respect. Treatment goals are chosen as a team with the BCBA, the family, and the learner so the values of the family are incorporated into therapy.

What We Do

ABA has become more accessible in Idaho over the last several years, but families can have a tough time finding the right fit. At Coeur, we are able to provide services in the home, community, school, daycare, or work settings. Most of our staff have several years of experience working in the field of ABA. They have the training, experience and dedication to provide high-quality, innovative, and compassionate support to our learners and their caregivers. We seek to understand a family’s values and goals before we begin working with the learner. We emphasize teaching learners self advocacy, assent withdrawal, and communication to access their needs first. From there we expand on their communication and build up their tolerance skills so they can cooperate in their lives to the fullest.

One on One Therapy

The very first thing we do when onboarding a client is the assessment process. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will begin by discussing parent values and goals for their learner, and include the learner in this process as much as possible as well. We promise not to try and change behavior until we can understand it. We will complete interviews, review records, and conduct an individualized assessment with the learner as well. From here, we collaborate with the family to create goals for the learner to work on. These goals are constantly being re-evaluated as we begin to implement them as well. The goals go into an individualized plan. The plan and supporting documentation is submitted to the learner’s medical insurance and once we receive authorization we are ready to begin treatment. Treatment for each learner will vary. Some will receive anywhere from 5-30 hours a week of services. Once we are able to start direct treatment, a behavior technician (BT) will work with the learner and focus on building a relationship with them. This opportunity to build rapport is vital to the learner’s success. Data is collected on the learner’s goals, and the goals are constantly evaluated to determine what changes need to be made to determine success. The BCBA will support the BT and the caregivers through ongoing training, so the learner is receiving well-rounded support. After six months, the assessment process is completed again. It is a continuous process where we are always re-evaluating and determining what is best for the learner and the family.

Skills Based Training

Skills Based Treatment (SBT) is a specific approach within ABA typically used for individuals who have severe problem behavior that is impacting them across multiple venues of life. The SBT process prioritizes safety, televisability, and rapport with learners. The overall goal of SBT is to develop trusting relationships between the learner and caregivers, and to teach learners how to be effective despite ambiguity, unpredictability, and disappointments that occur in everyday life. Through an assessment process, we are able to determine the context in which the learner is truly "Happy, relaxed, and engaged," and then we begin to teach communication, toleration, and cooperation skills.

Caregiver Coaching and Support

Caregiver support is provided both for clients receiving one on one therapy, as well as families just seeking support from a BCBA in the form of caregiver coaching. The BCBA will meet with each family, complete an individualized assessment process, receive authorization, and begin to work with the family on the best way to support them and their child. This may look like video meetings, phone calls, in-person meetings, coaching sessions, observations with written feedback, or however the family best receives the information. The purpose is to give families the tools and strategies they will need to carry out the principles of ABA across all the settings that a learner will encounter day to day, while focusing on the social significance of the goals. Collaboration, communication, and consistency are all crucial components of a learner’s progress and incorporated into caregiver support.
