Sole Provider Model
In the sole provider model, your child receives ABA services by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Due to limited availability, this model is more likely to be accessible to children who receive fewer service hours.
In the tiered provider model, your child receives ABA services by a highly trained Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) who is closely supervised by a BCBA. Depending upon on the amount of services received, a second RBT may be assigned to your child's ABA team.
You don’t have to choose between the tiered model and the sole provider model.
Your child can get ABA services from either or both. Whichever model you choose depends on your child’s individual needs and provider availability.
Your child receives ABA services in our child-friendly clinic setting which allows for a more regulated learning environment. Our minimally distracting therapy rooms foster a faster rate of acquisition for new skills and adaptive replacement behaviors. Although parents or guardians are not required to be present during all sessions, they are encouraged to participate as often as possible.
Your child receives ABA services in his or her home. This allows opportunity to work on specific skills pertaining to daily living in his or her natural environment. As a parent or guardian is required to be present during all home-based sessions, families are offered more frequent opportunity to participate in their child's treatment.
You don’t have to choose between center-based services and home-based services. Your child can get ABA services in either setting or both. Whichever setting is chosen depends on your child’s individual needs and provider availability. As your child's progress will be enhanced by your participation, please be aware that a bi-weekly parent-training component will be required in both settings.
