Individualized Assessments

An ABA treatment program is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and completing individualized assessments is an important component of developing an effective plan for services. All assessments are completed by one of our experienced Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBAs®) and will help us to develop an individualized treatment plan to support learners and families in meeting their goals.

Components of an ABA assessment include:

  • Caregiver interview – Our team will ask a series of questions to understand more about your child, your family, and your priorities for ABA treatment
  • Observations – Our team will observe your child in their home, school, or community environment
  • Skill assessment – Complete assessments to determine current skills in communication, socialization, and adaptive behavior
  • Behavioral assessment – If seeking services for challenging or dangerous behavior, our team will complete a behavioral assessment that will be used to develop a behavior support plan

Practitioner-Mediated ABA Therapy

With practitioner-mediated ABA therapy, learners receive direct, 1:1 support from a Registered Behavior Technician® (RBT®). Practitioner-mediated ABA programs are developed, monitored, and supervised by a BCBA® and typically involve meeting with the treatment team multiple times each week. Practitioner-mediated ABA therapy can help your child in the following ways:
  • Increase skills in communication, socialization, self-help, leisure skills, and other areas
  • Increase learning readiness skills

Our team utilizes a variety of ABA strategies and techniques to help learners reach their goals.

Behavior Intervention and Support

When learners engage in challenging or dangerous behavior, it has the potential to impact safety, learning opportunities, and relationships with caregivers and friends. Our team works with your family to alleviate these challenges while maintaining safety and dignity for learners, families, and our team members.

Our behavior support plans help learners by:

  • Ensuring the learner has a way to express their wants and needs (teaching communication)
  • Teaching coping skills and self-management strategies
  • Empowering families to support their child with behavioral challenges at home
