ABA consultation and instruction for individual students

 

aba_consultation_instruction_individual_studentsOur consultants, Board Certified Behavior Analysts, will work in the classroom and/or your student’s home to help generalize the student’s IEP goals to the home environment.

Initial Assessment: A senior consultant reviews the student’s reports and evaluations, interviews parents and other team members, observes the child in his/her natural environment, and may implement various assessment tools. Based on the assessment, the consultant writes specific objectives for the child to work on and writes individualized teaching programs to help the child make progress on these objectives.

Service delivery: We tailor our ABA consultation services so they fit each particular family’s needs.  While we know challenging and interfering behaviors can seem overwhelming at times, a trained ABA instructor can assist the family by implementing training programs, modeling the skills they will need to work on with their child, and providing feedback.  Although the ABA instructor may be the one implementing the teaching programs, closely supervised by the consultant, parents are still kept in the loop and are encouraged to watch sessions.  If the parents want to be closely involved in teaching their child, the consultant can train the parents how to run the teaching programs.  Parents can also use the consultant as a resource to fine-tune the teaching programs and troubleshoot.  A combination of consultation to parents and to an instructor is also possible. For example, if the child requires more instruction time than is feasible for only the parent to provide, both the parents and an ABA instructor could implement teaching programs.

Data are continuously taken (writing down exactly what the client does as the client does it) and these data are then graphed in order to track progress objectively.  Teaching is individualized and dynamic; if the child is not learning, the consultant will adjust the teaching procedures.  There is more than one right way of doing things!  At Advances Learning Center, the child’s learning determines how we teach. The consultant collaborates with the student’s school team to maintain consistency across the student’s environments.
