In Home – Miya, 5 years old
Sam, Miya’s STE Behavior Technician (BT), greets Miya at her door, ready to start today’s session. Sitting down to play with racecars, Sam sees that Miya has mastered the ask skills that they had implemented yesterday. She notes Miya’s success on her tablet, which she uses to track Miya’s progress throughout each session. At the end of the session, Sam stores all session materials in the bin until the next time that they are together. This keeps the materials intact, and Miya is always excited to play with Sam and “open the treasure chest!”
Each session, Sam follows the behavior plan created by Miya’s Clinical Director (CD) and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), Shane. Before any BT was placed on Miya’s case, Shane conducted a multiple-week evaluation of Miya to assess her needs. This included observing potential areas of growth, existing strengths, and collaborating with her parents to establish family goals for sessions. As a result, both Sam and Shane are ready to adjust Miya’s program on a minute-to-minute basis to best meet her needs.
