What can I expect?
The level of service your loved one receives depends solely on their needs and what is feasible for the family. All services start with an assessment of skills in developmental milestone areas. The assessment along with a family interview, and records review drives the development of the individualized treatment plan.
Focused ABA Treatment
Concentrates on a small number of treatment goals with fewer hours of intervention (10-25 hours per week). A focused ABA program may involve increasing social behaviors, reducing severe behavior that should be prioritized over all other goals (i.e. self-injury, severe aggression etc.) while teaching replacement skills and may also be appropriate for individuals who lack basic functional skills (i.e. toileting, feeding etc,)
Comprehensive ABA Treatment
Targets multiple affected developmental domains such as cognitive, communicative, social, emotional and adaptive functioning.
Maladaptive behaviors, such as noncompliance, tantrums, and stereotypy are also typically the focus of treatment. Due to the number of areas and goals these programs generally have more hours of interventions per week ranging from 30-40 hours.
