Top Questions to ask your ABA Provider…. ANSWERED!!

  1. What kind of oversight will the direct staff have? All direct care staff (RBT’s, BCaBA’s and BCBA’s) will be overseen on a weekly basis to ensure treatment fidelity of programming and continued learner success.

  2. Do you have team meetings? Yes, we have monthly team meetings in which we review our learners successes and difficulties, learn new concepts/review research in the field and work on team building activities! 

  3. How is data collected and graphed? Our data is collected and graphed on a daily basis via our online platform: Central Reach. The lead analyst reviews this data on a weekly basis to ensure that our learners do not need additional modifications and continue to make significant progress. 

  4. What kind of parent support is offered? What will this look like? Parent support is an extremely important portion of our therapy! We believe that all skills worked on should be generalized to the natural environment and with the caregivers involved with our learners. Parent support is offered with the lead analyst and usually follows the behavior skills training model: Instructions are presented, the analyst performs the skill, the analyst and caregiver rehearse the skill and then the caregiver receives feedback implementing the skill. Instructions are modified per family structure. We will always make accommodations on what works best for your family! 

  5. Can we do community outings? ABSOLUTELY! We go where you may need us the most. Community outings lets us put the skills we are working on to the test in the natural environment. 

  6. Do you coordinate with other service providers (e.g., school, OT, speech)? Collaboration is KEY! We love to collaborate with other service providers to incorporate whatever skills they want us to incorporate and vice versa. 

  7. What kind of teaching will be involved in my child’s program? We incorporate both Discrete Trial Instruction and Natural Environment Teaching. Click on the links for additional information. 

  8. How are the goals developed? Goals are developed using various methods. We will conduct an initial assessment to test the learner’s skillset, observe them in the natural environment and conduct a series of interviews with caregivers. Based on these results, we will develop goals for our learners to meet in the next 6 months. We will review with caregivers to ensure they are in accordance with these goals. 

  9. What will be in my child’s behavior intervention plan? We will include antecedent manipulations, consequences and replacement behaviors for maladaptive behaviors. 

  10. What services are available to my child? We offer one-on-one direct intervention, parent support services, school consultation, behavior based feeding therapy, and toilet training.
