ABA Therapists provide one to one intervention in the form of teaching the child new skills and supporting the child to better manage their challenging behaviour.
Learning opportunities are incorporated within a mixture of play based activities and structured teaching sessions, facilitated by the therapist. The therapists will work closely and regularly with your child and your home.
Some of the specific responsibilities of a therapist involve:
- Implementing the skill building curriculum as directed by the child’s behavioural consultant.
- Following the outlined Behaviour Intervention Plan as indicated within the child’s program.
- Taking data to record progress during tutoring sessions.
- Providing feedback to families and the behavioural consultant regarding issues and concerns as they pertain to implementing the program.
- Attending required training and team meetings on a regular basis as the child’s program evolves in response to his/her rate of progress.
- Provide support at daycare/preschool/school to assist with generalising skills targeted in the home program.
