How Does it Work?
Established relationships with parents means we can share information positively and effectively to support children as much as possible.
The initial step in this process starts with completing our welcome packet intake form CLICK HERE. Before initiating services, we require background information regarding your loved one.
Benefit Verification and Assessment Authorization
Once intake is complete, a team member will contact your insurance provider to verify eligibility. Once verified, authorization will be received.
An adept BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) will valuate your loved one’s functionality regarding areas of communication, social skills, adaptive daily living, and behavior (FBA).
Parent training is included as part of the therapy. A BCBA will work closely with parents to ensure parents have the skills and knowledge needed outside of session hours.
Upon the completion of the assessment, a BCBA will formulate an individualized treatment plan. This will ensure your loved one’s specific needs are addressed. We establish a personalized treatment plan that will assist the client in meeting his/hers goals, maximizing their potential.
After the treatment plan is created, the client will be assigned a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). This ABA trained therapist will work with your loved one in addressing and reaching the goals outlined in the treatment plan.

One verbal request (ensuring understanding) followed by gentle physical assistance
Teaching and practicing of preferred behaviours in order to help children habituate skills and learn self discipline
Offering children age appropriate choices and assisting them to follow through
Corporal punishments of any child (spanking, hitting, shaking, etc.)
