The Initiation Process
Step 1: We sit down on the phone or in person to discuss your child and their needs: Forwarding or coming prepared with your insurance information and any medical or educational professionals’ assessment(s) is always a good idea.
Step 2: One of our Program Managers, a certified BCBA will assess your child’s current abilities and needs, as well as determine their potential for future improvement. This assessment is provided using the current “gold standard” assessment instruments, previous treatment histories, medical history, relevant personal and family history, and any other sources available.
Step 3: Goals are outlined by our Program Managers, a certified BCBA. specialists.
Step 4: Once we submit your child’s program for review with the insurance one of our administrators’ partners with you, the parent, and your insurance to create a schedule that is tailored to your families needs and availability.
Step 5: Treatment proceeds, with progress being routinely communicated to the individual, family, insurance, and others as required.
The Clinical Treatment Process
Step 1: Treatment has begun and diligent records are kept of your child’s progress in their individual program books.
Step 2: The treatment plan is regularly updated to reflect the progress or requirement of your insurance. As your child evolves so do our goals, objectives, and methods.
Step 3: Once a sufficient amount of new skills are developed and mastered, we may begin to transition those skills from center-based therapy to more “naturalized” environments such as home or school, as well as beginning to involve family and peers.
The Transition Process
Step 1: As new skills are mastered and generalized to more natural environments, the therapy moves on as well, more time is allocated to environments, activities, and relationships away from the clinical environment.
Step 2: We partner with community professionals in order to streamline our approach so that it mirrors their services as much as possible.
Step 3: With an increase in success in many environments, clients begin to phase out of their intensive programs in our office to more naturalistic teaching strategies in larger group instruction.
