In-home Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services utilize individualized plans to teach functional communication, basic academics (as permitted by the funding source), social skills, self-help skills, and independent play using a variety of teaching methods including but not limited to the Analysis of Verbal Behavior, Discrete Trial Training, NET/Incidental Teaching and Pivotal Response Training. All STE programs use principles of ABA to capture each individual’s motivation and maximize success.

Early Intervention (EI)

Generally for children under the age of 5 and especially for children under 3 years of age

Each child is assessed using the VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program, written by Mark Sundberg, PhD, BCBA), the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, 2nd Edition, an interview and observation, functional assessment (when appropriate), and a comprehensive records review

The treatment plan developed outlines the child’s strengths and deficits and identifies goals for skill acquisition and behavior reduction

GOALS

The goals span all developmental domains with the overall goal of bringing the child’s skills up to the level of same age peers

PARTICIPATION

All EI programs require parent participation and training as parents are an integral and essential part of their child’s learning

HOURS

Hour recommendations can range from 25 hours per week to 40 hours per week based on the results of the assessment and research demonstrating that children under the age of 3 benefit the most when they receive at least 25 hours of ABA per week

LOCATION

Services can take place in the home, pre-school, school (as permitted), and out in the community.

We work to cultivate honest and authentic relationships with our clients, stakeholders, and employees; treating people the way we'd like to be treated.

.

Social Skills Training & Behavior Reduction

For children and adults of all ages

Each individual’s treatment plan and goals are based on a comprehensive assessment, similar to the EI assessment described above

GOALS

Goals address areas of deficit and excess, focusing primarily on behaviors that prevent individuals from fully participating in their families and communities, such as aggression and self-injury, and teaching adaptive skills that enhance the lives of the individuals, such as dressing and toileting

Goals can also include teaching communication skills including advanced social conversation

PARTICIPATION
All Social Skills Training and Behavior Reduction programs require parent participation and training as parents are an integral and essential part of their child’s learning
HOURS

Hour recommendations range from 10-20 hours per week based on the needs of the individual and clinical recommendation of the Board Certified Behavior Analyst

LOCATION

Services can take place in the home, pre-school, school (as permitted), and out in the community.

.

Consultation

STE Consultants can provide consultation services only, as needed to parents of children with any challenging or dangerous behavior

Similarly to the above services, a comprehensive assessment is conducted to guide the development of the treatment plan

A BCBA works directly with the parents/caregivers to train them on procedures developed to target the needs of the individual

HOURS

Hour recommendations vary depending on the needs of the individual and his/her parents or caregivers

LOCATION

Services can take place in the home, pre-school, school (as permitted), and out in the community.
