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 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 Is ABA
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. DIS is a group of Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Registered Behavior Technicians trained in Applied Behavior
Analysis who create a comprehensive, yet individualized program to address the needs of each child and his/her family.
