Once you have completed the initial consultation, the first step for parents wanting to embark on an ABA program is the Assessment of your child’s current skill level.
Two and a half-hour evaluation
The Assessment takes the form of a two and a half-hour session with our Program Supervisor who evaluates your child’s needs.
VB-MAPP used to assess current skill level
Depending on the age of your child, using the Verbal Behaviour-Milestones and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) or the Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS) our Program Supervisor undertakes a systematic and comprehensive evaluation of your child’s abilities. This provides the:
- Baseline level of performance
- Direction for intervention
- System for tracking skill acquisition
- Tool for outcome measures
- Framework for therapy planning
Our Program Supervisor then compiles your child’s Assessment Report outlining a treatment plan and recommended ABA therapy hours.
