Our clients meet with a Behavior Specialist 2–5 times per week in the home and community settings. During ABA sessions, the Behavior Specialist will teach specific skills to include communication, self-help and socialization skills as well as use behavior strategies to decrease inappropriate behaviors.
Our team will assess your child using assessments to include Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS), VB-MAPP, Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS), Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) and reinforcement/preference assessments prior the development of a comprehensive treatment plan.
All of our families are provided with training sessions designed specifically for the family. During training sessions families meet with a Training and Services Coordinator and are taught how to enhance their child’s socialization, self-help and communication skills, as well as strategies to reduce inappropriate behaviors.
Our staff works closely with your child’s school team as well as speech therapists, occupational therapists, feeding specialists, physical therapists, respite workers, and medical professionals to ensure consistency across treatment plans. Our staff will collaborate with your child’s team on a monthly basis.
Our Clinical Supervisors (BCBA or BCaBA), Training and Services Coordinators and Directors (BCBA) will provide educational advocacy to ensure that your child gets the support that he/she needs to be successful in the school setting. Our staff will attend school meetings (IEP, eligibility, etc.), suggest goals/objectives, assist in the development of BIP/FBAs and observe in the school setting. We help families advocate for specific services, placement changes and accommodations.
The Clinical Supervisor and Training and Services Coordinator will create individual behavior plans after careful analysis of the behavior data. Families will be trained on the implementation of behavior plans by the Training and Services Coordinator.
The Clinical Supervisor will create skill building programs after analysis of the ABLLS, VB-MAPP, AFLS, IEP and documents provided by other service providers. Behavior Specialists will run programs and collect data during all sessions.
