Families will meet with the BCBA or Clinical Director prior to the assessment so that more can be learned about your child and their needs.
Once a child has been assessed for functional, behavioral and communication deficits, a treatment plan and behavior plan is created so those skills can be practiced throughout the day, across various settings and therapists, and ultimately, programmed for generalization.
The daily schedule is broken into two or three session blocks where clients transition to a different therapist. Following is an sample schedule of a child receiving 3 fulls sessions per day:
Session 1: Check-in routines, adaptive skills (such as bathroom, dressing and eating skills), pairing/manding, probes for skill retention from prior day. Within the first session of the day, young learners will participate in a preschool readiness program.
Session 2: Pairing/Manding, adaptive skills training, intensive teaching/maintenance session with a combination structured table time.
Session 3: Adaptive skills training, social skills/group instruction, Generalization of mastered skills through natural environment teaching. Cleaning up for the day and check-out procedures.
Within each block session, additional focus can be given to identified deficits such as behavior, safety and other skills areas.
New Heights ABA realizes our young learners do receive other therapies throughout the week. This is why we will go the extra mile to ensure your child receives a schedule that is flexible for the family.
New Heights ABA will also provide focus treatment where needed. Focused treatment can be used for more advanced learners who may struggle in a variety of areas including:
- Behavior Problems
- Toilet training and other adaptive skill areas
- Social Skills
