We have highly trained Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) who work independently with individuals seeking ABA services. RBTs are trained professionals who have received intensive training and follow guidelines set by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). RBTs are supervised and trained under the direction of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to expand their knowledge and skills as a technician so that we can continue to increase our performance and maintain exemplary service delivery for our clients.
Individuals who receive one-on-one services go through intensive therapy where sessions are dedicated to their goals outlined in the treatment plan. Throughout the whole
session, RBTs utilize many different teaching procedures and strategies that may help individuals learn at their own pace. These procedures and strategies may include reinforcement, premack principle, incidental teaching, errorless
learning, shaping and prompt fading, functional communication training, and more.
Individuals can maintain motivation by playing with toys that aren't accessible outside of the clinic. Individuals can continue to work on goals while also staying happy, relaxed, and engaged. As Individuals continue to receive services at the center, routines and familiarity to the environment can be established to help learners feel more comfortable during session. Individuals enrolled may also be in an environment surrounded with other enrolled peers to target social skills, academic/school readiness, and group therapy.
We understand that obstacles may limit access to other forms of services outside of your home. Providing ABA therapy at the individual's home may be the most natural environment available. Individuals can learn while being in the comfort of their own home. Parents can also observe our staff model behavioral applications with their child.
Better Options Counseling can provide additional support to help individuals in the school system be more successful in that learning environment. This may include additional reminders or prompts when completing a task, building confidence to answer questions, following classroom rules and activities, etc.
We also provide services to help guide and train professional with strategies to improve the student's quality of experience at school. This may target peer-social interaction across environments, academic/individual success, and values outcome for students.
