Do we have a waiting list?

We do not have a waitlist because we do not want families waiting for services. If you contact us and we do not have availability in your area at that time, we will provide you resources to help you find providers who are available in your area. We are always recruiting and training new talent, so feel free to check back and see if availability has opened up after some time.

Do we use the VP-MAPP and/or provide VB instruction?

Yes! The majority of our therapists utilize the VB-MAPP assessment to assess children with deficits in the area of communication. The assessment is then used to create the communication goals needed and VB instruction is utilized to teach those skills. Learn more about the VB-MAPP here.

How long do children typically need ABA therapy?

This is really determined on a child-by-child basis and cannot be determined by anyone but the BCBA and treatment team working with your child. ABA is an on-going therapy that can change and grow with your child to cater to their ever-changing needs as they continue to grow older.

What is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)?

A BCBA is an individual with an expertise in the field of behavior analysis. All BCBAs are required to possess a Master’s in ABA, Psychology, or Education. They are also required to complete over 1500 hours of fieldwork in which they must directly work with ABA programs as well as spend about 50% of those hours learning how to work on ABA programming and data analysis. During that fieldwork they are also required to be supervised by a BCBA who helps guide them through their fieldwork and ensures that they are practicing techniques correctly and helping them to work on experiencing and teaching all areas of ABA in order to become a well-rounded BCBA. Once the coursework and fieldwork is complete, they sit for and pass their boards. So, each BCBA coming into the field is required to have gained a good amount of experience before becoming certified.

A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) has the same role as an ABA Technician; however they carry the RBT credential which is a nationally recognized professional certification that requires more extensive training. RBTs are required to have completed a 40 hour ABA training, a competency assessment completed by a BCBA to insure they can perform an array of skills in the ABA field, and to have passed an exam. They are required to complete competency assessments yearly to maintain their credential.
