COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL ASSESSMENT
At the start, one of our experienced BCBAs will come to your home and conduct an observation and comprehensive assessment so that we can get to know your child well. Your BCBA will then identify the weak points in the child’s repertoire that may impede future progress. By identifying the weak points, we develop a robust, well-rounded program with your child’s specific needs in mind.
INDIVIDUALIZED THERAPY PACKAGE
We're here for you! We focus on what is most important to you as a parent, and together choose goals that will help your child with autism learn new and important skills, as well as enhance his functioning in his home environment.
Home is your child's natural environment, and there is a lot that you can do as a parent! As your child learns new skills with specific ABA techniques, you will be able to use these techniques to further enhance his functioning at home. The BCBA on your child's team will discuss and teach you specific skills to facilitate generalization of the skills he's learned.
ONGOING MONITORING OF PROGRESS
As your child progresses, more and higher level skills can be targeted due to his progress. His programs will be continuously monitored and updated by your BCBA to facilitate his ongoing learning and progress.
FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOR ASSESSMENT
Our BCBAs are highly skilled in conducting Functional Behavior Assessments. Your BCBA will conduct a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) when necessary to learn more about your child's problem behavior and determine why it's happening. Following the assessment, a behavior plan will be developed to teach appropriate behaviors and monitor the decrease of presenting problem behaviors.
COLLABORATION WITH SCHOOLS AND THERAPISTS
We want to be sure that your child is successful in all his learning environments. We're happy to meet and collaborate with your child's school and therapists so that his progress is streamlined across his day.
