Intensive ABA Services

 

Spectrum Transformation Group provides high-quality, research-based Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) treatment services to children birth through 21 diagnosed with a qualifying disorder. Some of these diagnoses include Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down Syndrome, Global Developmental Delay, and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Spectrum understands the importance of addressing challenging behaviors and recognizes the effect that these behaviors have on the family. This is why we take a collaborative and positive approach to treatment. This program delivers services in the home and community, or as we call it, a child’s natural environment.

Spectrum Transformation Group provides assessment and specific treatment for the reduction of:

• Problem behaviors (e.g., hitting, kicking, spitting, biting, etc.)
• Toileting accidents
• Poor sleeping habits
• Poor communication skills
• Poor social skills
• Self-stimulatory behavior (“stimming”)
• Poor play skills

Our Service Model

Spectrum’s Intensive ABA Services are provided to each child on an individualized basis, through a continuum of therapy models. Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Individualized ABA assessment using a variety of empirically-supported tools and programs to identify the child’s strengths and areas of need;
  • Comprehensive 1:1 treatment provided in the client’s natural environment on a daily basis to target problem behaviors;
  • Weekly ABA treatment focused on the child’s daily living skills;
  • School and related service (OT, PT, Speech) coordination to promote treatment success and collaboration between all persons involved in the child’s care;
  • Parent/ caregiver training in topics related to ABA treatment and the child’s behavior plan;
  • Consultative services to promote the child’s success in home, school or community settings; and
  • Regular meetings with parents, caregivers, and other service providers to share progress and treatment strategies, in addition to providing educational advocacy and consultative supports to enhance a child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), as needed.

The Treatment Team

Spectrum Transformation Group provides Intensive ABA therapy through a tiered service delivery model (as opposed to stand-alone services) that allows each child access to the most effective and appropriate level of care. Spectrum’s Intensive ABA Service team will help you gain new insights and skills for dealing with your child’s specific issues. We view the treatment team to include:

  • A Licensed Behavior Analyst (BCBA, BCaBA)
  • At least one Behavioral Counselor to deliver direct treatment on a routine basis
  • The child’s parents or caregivers
  • Coordination with other providers involved in the child’s care

Spectrum Transformation Group understands that a child’s success in treatment is often enhanced by the participation of his or her caregivers, and we require the direct involvement of each family member to the greatest extent possible. Our team provides direct parent training, referrals for other services, and coordination of care between other medical services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy or psychiatric care, on a routine basis.

Enrollment Process

To begin the enrollment process, a letter of medical necessity is required from the child’s treating physician (primary care or specialist), or psychiatrist. Spectrum Transformation Group’s Intensive ABA Service program accepts Medicaid, self-pay, and most private insurance plans (please check with your benefits specialist to verify coverage).
