Our ABA therapy program is administered by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). These clinicians work together to ensure that each child in at The Place receives comprehensive, individualized treatment consistent with our systematic approach to autism therapy.
Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)
BCBAs are practitioners who have been certified by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board. The BCBA credential indicates that a person is qualified to oversee a program in behavior analysis. BCBAs hold advanced degrees and have completed relevant coursework as well as supervised fieldwork in behavior analysis. They supervise RBTs and other behavior analysts while abiding by a strict code of ethics that guides their every move.
As it relates to ABA services for autism, a BCBA identifies the areas of deficit or need that impede a person on the spectrum’s ability to function on pace with their peers. They also take the lead on creating specific lessons on how to teach skills based on the individual’s existing repertoire, motivators, and abilities. In essence, they create and evaluate each child’s individualized program and take the lead on strategy and goal setting. BCBAs are the dedicated behavioral experts steering the course of each child’s healthy development.
Interested in ABA therapy for your child?
An autism diagnosis does not change who your child is. It simply provides an explanation, or a lens through which to better understand your child’s needs. A diagnosis can also open up access to resources and eligibility for autism therapies. Remember that you and your child are in a better position now than you were before the diagnosis.
Most children with autism respond well to therapy, especially if started early in life. Depending on the level of severity, many children on the autism spectrum are able to participate in traditional school, and may end up leading entirely independent adult lives.
