Once we are ready for the initial consultation, further completion of forms will be required to gain more detailed information about our client.
Steps to aba services
Client Intake Form
Upon receipt of the New Client Intake Form, we will review the information and determine whether we are the ideal match for your needs based on the client's age and diagnosis. If so, we will contact you with a request for additional information about the client, doctor's referral, and your health insurance carrier (if applicable) to obtain pre-authorization for ABA therapy.
Prior to the initial meeting, indirect assessment forms will be required to be completed by a parent or caregiver. This assessment allows the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to understand the client's medical history, strengths, deficiencies, problem behaviors, and preferences. This information can be used to maximize the effectiveness of behavioral interventions. Hence, during the initial interview, the assessment forms, client's needs, contract forms, previous treatments, and other necessary information will be discussed and reviewed.
Direct ABA ASSESSMENTs
ABA assessment involves conducting a developmental assessment (e.g., VB-MAPP, Vineland, ABBLS-R) and functional behavioral assessment (e.g., ABC data, Functional Analysis ). Developmental assessments focus on language, social, and motor skills while providing information about how the child develops to peers his or her age. Functional behavioral assessments identify the causes of problematic/destructive behaviors (e.g., hitting, tantrums, self-injury).
Behavior Intervention Plan
Once the assessments are completed and baseline data is collected, the BCBA will develop an individualized treatment plan. Some of the components of a treatment plan are
Behavior deficits (e.g., adaptive, socialization, communication,
Goals/objectives for skill acquisition (short and long term),
Generalization, maintenance, and discharge plan,
The parent/caregiver goals and training plan,
Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) for reducing challenging behaviors.
onset of aba services
Once the treatment plan is completed, and the BCBA has determined the amount of hours therapy is needed per week, the information will be reviewed with the parent/caregiver. Finally, a schedule will be made for the client to start receiving ABA therapy.
Please note that the treatment plan for clients with a health insurance carrier will need to be sent to the carrier for approval. Once the approval is received, ABA therapy can begin.
