Applied behavior analysis is based on data driven, empirically based strategies. We utilize data collected by the 1:1 Direct Interventionist and parent to document behavior change across time such as reducing challenging behaviors, building communication skills, improving social interactions, etc.
•Ask what your child’s baseline rates of behaviors and skills are
•Ask how your child compares to other children based on standardized assessments such as the Vineland, ABAS-3; VB-MAPP
•Ask for Progress Reports and compare your child behavior rates/skill performances from baseline to current progress
•Are skills improving while challenging behaviors reduce in frequency?
•Are parents being taught to implement similar treatment strategies at home in order to promote generalization and maintenance of behavior gains?
