Organization Information


Organization: Rochester Center for Autism

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: The Rochester Center for Autism is a center-based ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) program that provides one-on-one therapy for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA is a scientific approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. The science of behavior analysis focuses on principles about how behavior works, or how learning takes place. One of the basic principles of behavior analysis is positive reinforcement: When a behavior is followed by something that is valued (reward), that behavior will likely be repeated. Verbal Behavior (VB) uses B. F. Skinner'sDescription: http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=autismweb&l=as2&o=1&a=0394716183 1957 analysis of Verbal Behavior to teach and reinforce speech. The Center’s VB program focuses on getting a child to realize that language will get him what he wants, when he wants it. Requesting is often one of the first verbal skills taught; children are taught to use language to communicate, rather than just to label items.

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
