The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Clinic at CCSN Behavioral Health is a clinic-based model for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders and their families. The science of ABA is effective in teaching a wide-variety of skills including academic, social, communication, and adaptive skills, as well as reducing challenging behaviors.
The ABA Clinic at CCSN provides access to evidence-based treatments supported through research in education, psychology, and applied behavior analysis and progress monitoring to allow data-driven program decision making.
All staff at the ABA Clinic have experience treating children with ASD, and are certified to deliver ABA services through the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB). Staff are required to engage in professional continuing education and participate in individual and group supervision from highly qualified supervisors. The ABA Clinic is supervised by doctoral level Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA-D) with service delivery from Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). Staff are chosen to work at the ABA Clinic based on experience level, as well as their ability to connect with and motivate children.
Intake & Assessment
In most cases, the intake process is a two-part procedure with both an initial phone call with a BCBA-D and a scheduled interview in the office with the parent/guardian and the child, when possible. The ABA Clinic utilizes a variety of assessments to inform the development of clinic-based programming for the individuals it supports. These assessments include Functional Assessments (e.g., functional behavioral assessments and functional analysis), Criterion-Referenced Assessment (e.g., VB-MAPP, ABLLS), Social Skills Assessment, and Adaptive Skills Assessment (e.g., Vineland, AFLS). All assessments are completed by a BCBA or a BCBA-D. Families are provided with reports that describe the current needs of the child along with treatment recommendations.
After the completion of the assessment, treatment plans are developed by a BCBA or BCBA-D in collaboration with parent/guardian and the child, whenever possible. Services may be delivered using direct instruction and/or natural environment teaching with an emphasis on acquisition of new skills, maintenance of acquired skills, and generalization of skills and teaching procedures to the home through structured parent education sessions.
