Assessment - At the initial assessment stage:

  • The child is evaluated to determine his or her strengths and weaknesses.
  • Specific problem behaviors are targeted for treatment by means of evidence-based strategies.
  • Positive replacement behaviors are targeted for treatment based upon assessment instrument outcomes.

In-home ABA Intervention

  • In-home services take place in the child’s primary environment for learning—the home.
  • The behavior team of between 2 to 5 professionals consists of a program supervisor who is also a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA), and the one-to-one behavior therapist(s).
  • The parents are active participants in every phase of their child’s program, including the initial assessment, progress reports, and implementation of and participation in daily programming in and outside of sessions.
  • Services are funded through the local regional center, school district, or private insurance.
  • Collaboration with funding sources and other professionals serving the child promotes generalization and maintenance of skills.
  • Daily analysis of intervention effectiveness and goal development ensures that the child is progressing and quarterly or bi-annual reports document the child’s progress.
  • As the child becomes more and more successful, the in-home sessions become less structured, more natural, and expand to other settings.

Center-based ABA Intervention

  • Our Early Intervention Center delivers center-based ABA programs with individualized curriculum to children of 18 months to elementary school-aged.

School-based ABA Intervention

  • School services take place in the general or special education classroom setting where the behavior therapist shadows the student, approaching and assisting the student when necessary and fading assistance when the student is able to independently demonstrate appropriate academic skills and social skills with classroom peers.
  • Support services for students include programming designed to decrease behavior excesses while creating functional learning outcomes, adaptive replacement behaviors, and skill building curricula using evidence-based strategies.
  • The behavior team of between 2 to 5 professionals consists of a BCBA program supervisor and the one-to-one behavior therapist(s).
  • The behavior team works collaboratively with the educational team to ensure the child’s success in the classroom and success with the individualized education plan (IEP) goals and objectives.
  • Shared goals, clear roles, and ongoing communication ensures maintenance of the quality of the programming.
  • Curriculum development is individually tailored in coordination with the school district and the IEP and include programs to address cognitive development, behavior management, social skills, and language and communication development.
  • Daily analysis of intervention effectiveness and goal development ensures that the child is progressing and quarterly and annual reports document the child’s progress and are presented at IEP meetings.

Supervision/Consultation - The BCBA program supervisor:

  • Designs, manages, and oversees the quality of the child’s programming; manages data collection procedures; and measures intervention effectiveness for all replacement behavior skill areas.
  • Conducts on-site observation (in-home or in the community) and ensures the reliable implementation of the specific interventions while the behavior therapist is working with the child.
  • Monitors the child’s progress via direct interaction, observation, and on-site data review, and revises programming as necessary.

ABA Training for Parents - Parent and family involvement is critical in many ways:

  • Parents become involved in setting goals and priorities for treatment; creating their own individual, community, and social networking opportunities and supports; and receiving training to become effective teachers.
  • Training for parents addresses skills that include how to work with their child to maximize the effect of an intervention, hands-on practical application with their child for the purposes of teaching positive replacement behaviors and skill-building steps, and how to plan for the future.
  • ABA concepts are broken down and taught through direct instruction, demonstration, role-play, sample video segments, and written and videotaped homework assignments in order to instill parent support, confidence, and mastery of concepts.

Training for School Personnel and Professionals

  • Inizio writes and conducts individualized trainings for the specific needs of a particular school, classroom, or varying levels of staff needing the training.
  • Services provided by Inizio include evidence-based instructional activities and strategies tailored for training staff, for each student or classroom, and consultation services for school district staff and professionals.
  • Inizio’s experienced practitioners offer a collaborative framework of evidence-based, teacher- and aide-friendly interventions and support that includes written and informal verbal instruction, role-play, and performance feedback.
