On-Going Therapeutic Services

1.

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.
2.

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.
3.

Supervision:

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.
4.

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.
5.

Facilitated Playdates:

We setup, attend, and coach clients during playdates with neurotypical peers to help the client practice skills being taught in sessions.
6.

Parent Groups:

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