During the intake consultation, you will get a chance to learn more about our services and we get to meet you and learn about your child’s educational and behavioral history.
Your Program Director and Supervisor will conduct an assessment to identify presenting behavioral barriers and skill deficits. Your Director will schedule observations to obtain baseline data of your child’s current skills. We use the following standardized assessment tools: Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales (Vineland-II), Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP), Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills-Revised (ABLLS-R), Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and Competency Learner Repertoire Assessment (CLRA).
Program Design, Consultation & Supervision
Your Clinical Director and Program Supervisor will develop an individualized program and treatment plan based on your child’s specific repertoire of deficits and skills. Directors and Supervisors monitor progress by conducting weekly supervision: observing the instructional program, conduct parent training and regularly review your child’s program data and graphs. Further, your Program Director and Supervisor will work with you and collaborate with other professionals on your child’s team to provide the most effective program. Monthly clinic meeting will be held to discuss progress and modifications to the program.
Behavior Therapy (1:1 Sessions)
Your highly trained Behavioral Instructors and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT's) will teach your child new skills in a 1:1 setting. Instructors are responsible for carrying out the treatment plan and the collection of data. Progress is assessed through qualitative and quantitative data collection and graphing. Behavior Therapy sessions are typically 2-3 hours in length. The intensity of the recommended service hours is based on your child’s goals.
Our classroom support focuses on: behavior modification, implementing or reducing prompts, developing a motivational system, social facilitation and increasing attention to academic tasks.
Family members and caregivers are considered to be integral and active participants in their child’s individualized program. Your Program Director and Supervisor will provide direct ongoing support and training that will help you better understand your child’s behavior, and ensure follow through of behavioral protocols and interventions to help with the generalization of skills.
