Behavioral Intervention Services, Inc. provides in-home services for families, including:
- ABA Training for parents and their team of therapists (both initial and ongoing workshops)
- In-between visit consults via email and telephone are available.
- Provision of academic, social, and behavioral support for children
Family Service Workshops are held to assist families in developing appropriate treatment programs to meet the needs of each individual child. The length of initial workshops can vary between two and three days with the initial follow-up workshop following four-six weeks later. Any workshops following the initial follow-up workshop can be scheduled to occur every six to eight weeks. In addition to workshops, phone consultations and video reviews are provided. The initial workshop outlines the principles of ABA that comprise the foundation for the intervention. In addition, Discrete Trial Therapy (DTT) and/or Errorless Learning, the primary methods of teaching, are covered in detail. One of these methods or a combination of the two will be chosen based upon the child's needs and his/her current skill level or as preferred by the parent. Other methods of teaching, such as Applied Verbal Behavior (AVB) will also be discussed and possibly applied, as the child's needs are evaluated. As these techniques are demonstrated, strategies for managing any challenging behaviors are modeled and discussed. Strategies for helping the child learn in the natural environment will also be discussed.
Upon completion of the initial workshop, families will be given a prescribed set of programs tailored to the child's specific educational needs. If desired, a consultation report will be sent to the families within two weeks of the workshop. The consultation report reviews the programs implemented at the workshop in detail, including target items and next steps within each program.
The same consultant who provides training for the initial workshop is available to families for consultations (e-mail, phone, or video) between workshops.
Parents meet with a consultant to discuss the program and how it applies to their child's needs.
Scheduling a Workshop
If you would like to schedule a workshop, call (or e-mail) our office to establish a time. We are typically able to schedule your initial workshop within 4-8 weeks.
After contact is made with Behavioral Intervention Services, Inc. we will ask that you complete our intake application and attach any assessments performed by various professionals used in the diagnosis of your child. In addition, you will be sent a workshop and video agreement. These forms must be received back in our office one week before your consultant departs for your workshop.
