Parent & Caregiver Consultation

ACT will consult with you at least twice monthly to help you learn the principles of ABA and ways to apply these principles with your child at home. You are your child’s first and best teacher, and we want to make sure you have the support you need to be successful.

ABA Therapy in a Social Skills Group Setting

Applied Behavior Analysis is provided by a team of our highly qualified Social Skills Group Leaders in a group setting at our new, state of the art facility. Each of our clients has a one-on-one therapist present at all times, but is also in a setting where they can learn to interact with their peers and follow group instructions, thus preparing them for inclusion in a school classroom when the time comes.

In a Meeting

Supervision & Team Meetings

Your child’s Program Supervisor will meet with you, your child’s RBT, and your child as often as twice per week for troubleshooting or changing programs/strategies as your child learns and progresses. Many other ABA companies offer once per month Supervision/Team Meeting, but ACT believes in doing the very best, which means more hands on work by the BCBA/BCaBA.

Ready for School

School Observation & Consultation

Your child’s Program Supervisor or another member of the treatment team will consult with classroom teachers and other professionals (including speech therapists, occupational therapists, etc.) and is able to join you at IEP meetings if desired in order to be a part of the multidisciplinary team.
