What to Expect When Receiving Services

  • Assessment

    • Pr​ior to developing a treatment plan for a client, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will conduct both direct (ABLLS-R, AFLLS, VB-MAPP, etc.) and indirect assessments (parent interview, analyzing records, etc.) in order to inform our treatment plan. 

  • Programming

    • A BCBA will use results from the aforementioned assessments to create individualized programming for the client. This programming will guide instruction. 

    • If behaviors are targeted for reduction, a BCBA will conduct a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), which will consist of direct and indirect assessment procedures to determine the function of the target behavior(s) and inform a behavior intervention plan (BIP). 

  • Therapy Sessions

    • Therapy sessions will be conducted by a behavior therapist and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

    • The BCBA assigned to the case will also conduct parent training and clinics with the client's family.
