Kathleen started KBS in 2015. She knew the Autism statistics were increasing, along with children with a background of Trauma and Behavior, but there was a lack of quality ABA therapy that was being provided by a BCBA, in the Ohio Valley. She wanted to be able to provide the children in the Ohio Valley a high quality ABA program, because she feels no child should go without services. KBS has a superior team, who all believe in the mission and core values, that set us apart from other organizations. All team members at KBS, undergo extensive training upon hiring. KBS provides monthly Professional Developments and opportunities for team members to further their knowledge and expertise. We continuously strive to stay on top of the research and different applications of intervention in our field, to best serve the clients we work with. 

The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has awarded Kendall Behavioral Solutions with a 3-Year Accreditation, recognizing the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The Accreditation celebrates exceptional behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction and qualifications, and consumer satisfaction. KBS has been recognized by the Ohio Secretary of State, Jon Husted, along with the Ohio House of Representatives. 

KBS is built on providing high quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to children of all ages. We work closely with other agencies and schools to provide a wrap around of services to best support the child and their family. KBS works with children who are diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injuries, ODD, EDD, Cognitive Delays, Behavioral disorders, Trauma background,Transitional services and more. Services are  provided in your home, the school (if contracted), and the community. Our services are provided by Registered Behavior Technicians (who are pursuing their BCBAs) with programming and supervision by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).

Every child is unique and we believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. Our therapists focus on building every child’s self esteem and confidence through positive feedback and reinforcers. We nurture their natural strengths. A child see’s the world around them with wonder and awe, we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.

At KBS, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst will create, oversee, and direct all behavioral programs. Our highly trained ABA therapists then carry out the programs by using the principles of ABA to address all behaviors, including speech and language, appropriate social skills, activities of daily living, academic skills, toilet training, community skills, safety skills, and more.
