ABA Therapy Services

Applied Behavior Analysis: in our Center Based Program; at your home; at school; or a combination (depending on each individual's needs and circumstances)

On the most basic level, services we provide are:
    - Assessment / Treatment Planning
    - Direct ABA Services (Home Based Instruction), including Supervision
    - Parent Training
    - Social Skills Groups

Direct ABA Services
Trained instructors, supervised by a NYS Licensed Behavior Analyst, implement programs written for each child. The instructors are well-trained in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and are either certified as a Behavior Analyst or working towards their certification. Generalization of all targeted skills to a range of applicable environments is essential to each child’s success. The Instructors are responsible for implementation of all of the home-based programs, as well as data collection. Each child’s progress is monitored by reviewing objective data based on direct observation of the child’s performance.

Supervision
Supervisors observe instructor-child interactions, conduct team meetings, write supervision notes, progress reports, and prepare  IEP objectives. They conduct Functional Behavioral Assessments and/or Functional Analyses Based on the results of these assessments. Supervisors guide the development and implementation of Behavior Intervention Plans.

Parent Training
To ensure that learned skills generalize across people, we teach family members effective ways of interacting with their child/sibling that are likely to produce more prosocial and less problematic behavior. The family can then aid in the generalization of learned skills and improvement of family-child interactions.

We place an emphasis on parental involvement in each child's intervention plan.  A parent's role in the team process, which involves collaboration between teachers, behavior consultants, and parents, is vital to the success of the child.  Behavior interventions are most effective when implemented consistently across settings, and part of our responsibility is to effectively collaborate with parents.  When treatments are developed that require specialized training, procedures such as modeling, instruction, rehearsal, and/or feedback will be used.  As with direct care services, parent training is individualized to every family's unique situation.

Social Skills
Run by certified PEERS trainers, our groups offer evidence-based social skills interventions.
Children and parents of those children attend concurrent classes, guided by a professionals.
Classes run for either 12 or 14 consecutive weeks, depending on the age group.

School-Based Consultation
The school-based consultation services involve observing children in classrooms, supporting teachers by assisting with staff training, making recommendations to improve the quality of services provided to the students, assisting  school personnel with  Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA), developing  Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP), and monitoring the effectiveness of interventions by reviewing objective data on directly observed behavior.

Home-Based Consultation
We provide home-based consultation services as needed. These services involve conducting staff training, observing, writing recommendations, and conducting team meetings to discuss recommendations.  Consultation services are also utilized to assist in the completion of a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) or Functional Analysis (FA) and development of a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP).
