Program Development, Training & Supervision
- We begin with a multimodal assessment that includes standardized assessments, criterion-referenced assessments, interviews, self-report forms, and direct observation across settings.
- Following our process we carefully interpret results to create an individualized Treatment Plan that is uniquely tailored to address your child's and family's needs.
- We then begin parent education and family guidance to begin empowering your family; this is followed by a full curricula introduction with your BCBA & RBT team, after which the weekly ABA sessions can begin.
- Supervision by one of our BCBAs will revisit your child's progress regularly throughout each month to ensure treatment integrity and make adjustments to ensure that our services are always current with your child's and family's needs.
- Family members will experience ongoing individualized education and guidance to continue meeting goals that are meaningful to you.
- We use many system supports to make your experience as smooth as possible. Our scheduling process, on-line parent portals and HIPAA Compliant communication apps are all designed to enhance the efficiency of our service s and staff management.
Parent Education and Family Guidance
We share a common interest with parents: the improvement in quality of life for their child and family. We see ourselves on common ground – as team members working closely together for positive outcomes. We require the firm commitment and collaboration between parents and our Behavior Analysts to achieve stated goals. Without this, the chance of improving socially significant behavior is strongly reduced.
After School Program
Autism Care West will soon be offering an after school program with more information coming in the near future.
Another component of comprehensive ABA therapy involves parents and BCBAs establishing goals for successful community outings, and then executing the necessary steps to achieve such goals. Behavior Analysts and RBTs accompany families to common community settings such as hair salons and barber shops, grocery stores, parks and more to target community-specific skills and to generalize other gains.
Generalization is challenging and a common weakness of ABA treatment when not addressed in a programatic way from the beginning and throughout the learning process. Without the proper generalization of skills ABA treatment programs lack social significance.
