Who We Are
Developmental Intervention Specialists, Inc. (DIS) is a private corporation located in South Florida. It was incorporated in July, 2004 by Belkis Aguilar-Coupet and has since been providing services to families of children with special needs as well as schools and facilities providing therapeutic services. DIS staff dedicates their time to providing services based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Offering a variety of services allows staff to meet clients needs across all developmental areas. In the past 3 years DIS has had the opportunity to offer additional services which include typically developing children in order to provide a more natural social environment.
What ABA Is
ABA is the application of behavioral science to the analysis of behavior. It is widely regarded as the most researched intervention in addressing the social, linguistic, and mental differences among children with developmental disabilities. DIS acknowledges that children with special needs require a multi-disciplinary approach to address their deficits. Through early intervention and intensive behavior therapy, we help children of all abilities and backgrounds, "spread their wings and fly." DIS is a group of therapists trained in Applied Behavior Analysis who create a comprehensive, yet individualized program to address the needs of each child and his/her family.
