On-Going Therapeutic Services


Program Creation:

We create a comprehensive program to teach clients new skills and reduce problem behavior and increase effective behaviors to get their needs met. This includes a behavior plan and usually between 10-20 individual goals for skill acquisition. The program is created after a parent interview and student observation.

ABA Therapy:

We provide in-home ABA therapy by well-trained and educated ABA therapists. These therapists implement the program that is created by the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Students typically receive services 3-5 days a week and each session is usually 2.5-3 hours.


ABA therapists are supervised frequently by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The BCBA also uses this time to observe the child, build a relationship with him/her, and problem solve any goals that are making slow progress.

Team Meetings:

We hold quarterly 1-2 hour team meeting for most clients to review progress, troubleshoot behavior, and maintain an open dialogue with families. We encourage the clients to attend these meetings when possible.

Facilitated Playdates:

We setup, attend, and coach clients during playdates with neurotypical peers to help the client practice skills being taught in sessions.

Parent Groups:

This is a safe place to express concerns and triumphs. It is a way to meet with other parents as well.



Behavior Plans For The Home:

We create Behavior Intervention Plans for families to use at home. This includes a written plan, training, and support to implement the plan at home.​

Behavior Plans For The Classroom:

We create treatment plans for staff to use in the classroom to help maintain a student’s behavior. This can be student specific or classroom-wide.

Program Creation:

We can create a program to teach clients new skills and reduce problem behavior. This includes a behavior plan and usually between 10-20 individual goals for skill acquisition. After this is completed, parents can hire a team to implement the program or they can implement it themselves.

Parent and Staff Training:

We are available to give talks to staff and parents about ABA. This can be done individually or in a group setting.

Continuing Education Provider:

BASICS is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Incorporated (BACB) to be a continuing education (ACE) provider.
