Once your child has been diagnosed and benefits have been verified, one of WeTherapy’s Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) will conduct a functional behavior assessment to determine the frequency of the services, recommended time commitment, and target treatment goals.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is demonstrated to be the best option for the reduction of problem behaviors and skill acquisition. At WeTherapy, we aid the development of children with Autism – and train their families – by providing ABA services. Our team of clinicians is comprised of skilled professionals, overseen by leaders specialized in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder through the use of Applied Behavior Analysis.
The initial assessment is a starting point to provide the clinical team with preliminary data about behaviors, skills to be targeted, and the intensity of your child’s ABA therapy.
Throughout the course of ABA therapy, a BCBA and Behavior Therapist (BT) will work with your family and child to refine the findings from the initial assessment in order to meet identified goals.
Each plan is customized to the child’s specific needs and can include recommendations for antecedent-based interventions, protocols for the consistent management of maladaptive behaviors, and protocols for teaching functional alternatives to maladaptive behavior.
