Initial assessments are completed in our centers and conducted by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Initial assessments are used to learn more about your child, your family, your goals, and answer questions. Initial Assessments are the first step in building an individualized program for your child.
Once the initial assessment is complete, our team will build an individualized treatment plan and program that aims to maximize your child’s success. From day one, your child will be learning in a child-centered environment intentionally designed to reach maximum outcomes.
The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced. We continue to work hard to evolve so we can continue to provide the best support to the families we serve and the members of our team. We want to continue to provide children with the best care possible, even if it may look a little different than it has in the past. As states begin to reopen, we'd like to share an update on how we are planning to transition back to the centers safely.
As always, safety is our top priority. Every decision made was through the lens of protecting the health of our families and team members. To create an environment that is safe for everyone, we will be taking a phased approach to returning to the centers.
If you’ve recently received a diagnosis or are new to learning about ABA therapy, you may be wondering what a typical day for your child with autism will look like?
During the early weeks of ABA, your child will become familiar with members of his or her team, while the team learns all about your child’s strengths, skills needs and learning style.
One of the first people your family will meet is your child’s Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), often referred to as a consultant. BCBA’s have an advanced education (masters degree), have met the requirements of the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) for specified coursework in behavior analysis, completed the required supervised experience hours, and have passed a national credentialing examination, which must be maintained with continuing education. In addition our BCBA’s have completed our advanced BCBA training program; a series of advanced coursework designed to further sharpen child programming repertoires with the most advanced and innovative treatment techniques from newly published research within the field.
During the first few weeks, your child’s BCBA will use several different evaluation tools to design a personalized intervention and skill development plan for your child. A team of behavior technicians will then work with your child 1:1 to implement the programs designed by the BCBA. Our behavior technicians specialize in following your child’s motivation to make learning fun and engaging, while maximizing teaching opportunities to accelerate progress.
Because every child is different, each child’s program is unique and will be personalized to meet your child’s needs.
Our programs for early learners are 1:1 and focus on building the critical foundational learning skills needed to help your child learn more efficiently and find learning enjoyable too. We also work heavily on building basic language and communication skills to ensure your child can effectively communicate with others and better advocate for themselves. In addition, we focus on developing beginner social, play and daily living skills to help your child learn to play appropriately with other children, make friends, and be more independent.
All children who are ready for our advanced learners program are also 1:1 and focus on building the necessary skills to be successful transitioning to a school setting following the graduation of our ABA program. Advanced learners spend a large part of the day in a mock classroom that closely mimics an elementary learner’s school day; complete with activities such as circle time, centers, social activities with scheduled “break outs” to work intensively on additional individual learning goals. Academic learning activities including Math, Reading and Language are also targeted daily through direct instruction curriculums. In addition, we work on building more advanced social and play skills further a child’s level of independence within the home, school, and community.
For all of our programs, parent training is key to a child’s success. A BCBA will meet monthly with parents to discuss progress and provide parent training. Our teams are also available during drop off and pick up times if needed and is available.
Bierman ABA offers a unique classroom setting for learners who may soon transition into a school setting. The classroom creates an environment that closely mimics an elementary learner’s school day, complete with activities such as circle time, centers, art, lunch, and music.
Family and friends participating in daily social groups that focus on communication, play, and daily living skills. While maintaining a 1:1 ratio, our children participate in group settings daily. Groups include play groups, social groups, mealtime groups, and community outings.
