With unwavering dedication, we focus on every child as a unique individual. We go a step beyond the expected and take a co-treatment approach, pulling in all of Oliver Behavioral Consultants’ therapeutic disciplines — occupational therapy, mental health, speech and language, and behavior — in order to create a unified and consistent approach to best serve our clients and their families.
Our mission is to provide interventions resulting in positive goal-focused outcomes that improved quality of life for our clients, their families, and communities.
Oliver Behavioral Consultants’ team of well-trained therapists take a multidisciplinary approach considering each clients’ unique needs to deliver function-based treatment strategies resulting in well-rounded intervention protocols.
Back in 2010, our founder, Dr. Patricia Oliver, was working in research at CU Denver. She loved the work with schools and her team, but she was missing the direct interaction with families and the “peanuts” (as she frequently refers to the children we serve). This need for direct contact with our community was her inspiration to start working directly with families in the Denver Metro area.
Initially, her work was mostly through early intervention (children 0-3 years of age). Her services were solicited when a youngster and her/his family were struggling with behavioral difficulties.
While working with families in their home, Dr. Oliver had the opportunity to interact with other professionals providing different kinds of supports to the families and their children. It was through these interactions that she came to the awareness of the need for creating transdisciplinary teams where children were valued as whole individuals with different needs and whom would benefit from a team approach to intervention.
This moment represented the initial blueprint for OBC. With the intention of creating a tight multidisciplinary team, she first hired an early childhood educator, then sometime later a speech and language pathologist, then followed by an occupational therapist. Recently, OBC has broadened its support even further by the addition of a mental health team who provide counseling and diagnostic services.
Through persistent work and total dedication, OBC is proudly celebrating its first 10 years of providing evidence-based support to the youngsters of our community and their families.
Oliver Behavioral Consultants is a team of compassionate and experienced board-certified behavior analysts, registered behavior technicians, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists devoted to a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to client care. We are heart-centered, child-first, and work every day to provide the highest level of assessment and intervention for individuals with delayed developmental skills, and various other diagnoses from birth to adulthood.
