"Improving Lives" "by helping make today and tomorrow better for you and your family."

Our Approach

Our Approach

Program Development, Training & Supervision

Program Development, Training & Supervision
  • We begin with a multimodal assessment that includes interviews, self-report forms, direct observation across settings, and the Promoting Emergence of Advanced Knowledge (PEAK) assessment.
  • 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 monthly 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 HIPPA Compliant communication apps are all designed to enhance the efficiency of our service s and staff management.

Parent Education and Family Guidance

Parent Education and Family Guidance
Autism Care West

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.

  • We require the mutual commitment from parents and caregivers working with us.
  • Parents receive continuous education and guidance for lasting effectiveness with their child.
  • Measurable goals are written specifically for families and we require these goals to be met.

Social Skills Group

Social Skills Group

Autism Care West offers an active social skills group our lively clinic that is rooted in assessments and measurable goals. During this time children learn to interact with peers and become more competent with their social communication and play skills. Our group is held three evenings per week and is always fun.

Community-Based Instruction

Community-Based Instruction

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

Generalization

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.

  • An emphasis on generalization runs parallel alongside all teaching from the beginning of, and throughout treatment.
  • We ensure that all working with our students receive comprehensive training on generalization.
