The first step to our ABA programs is an assessment. This assessment is conducted by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and is used to identify areas of need for your child and family. Based on this assessment, the BCBA develops a comprehensive treatment plan to address behavioral concerns and skill deficits in the home, school, and community setting. Once the treatment plan is complete, it is reviewed with the family and in-home ABA services begin.
Throughout the implementation of our ABA program, family trainings are conducted to ensure consistency across the child’s environment. Monthly team meetings are also mandatory to assess the child’s progress and any needs that arise during treatment.
In order to effectively serve our families, we offer different treatment options that are appropriate for the individual needs of our client.
We offer three types of service delivery models as well as short-term options to better serve individual family needs:
- The Direct Service Model: This model provides daily therapy sessions that range from 2-4 hours in length, allowing for 10-20 hours of ABA therapy per week.
- The Parent Training Model: This model provides therapy sessions 1-2 times per week that range from 2-4 hours in length, allowing for 2-8 hours of ABA therapy per week. Parents are trained using hands-on modeling and are expected to conduct 1-2 ABA sessions per week in the absence of the clinician.
- The Consultant Model: This model provides parent training sessions 1-2 times per month that range from 1-2 hours in length. Parents are trained in the principles of ABA as well as methods that will directly benefit their children.
