Behavioural Treatment Services
What are Behavioural Treatment Services?
Using Applied Behavioural Analysis-based strategies, we will work directly with caregivers and their child, in order to help the child develop communication, social and daily living skills, and to regulate behaviour.
Caregivers will work directly with one of our highly trained and skilled ABA Therapists to identify meaningful goals for their child. Behavioural Treatment Services range anywhere from 2 to 30 hours per week, for 2 to 6 months. In this time, we will work directly with the child and caregiver to develop skills in key areas, and to address behaviours that interfere with functioning. One of the goals of Behaviour Treatment Services, is to ensure long term success, outside of the setting in which the skills were learned (i.e. skills learned in home transfer to school setting).
We value strong, collaborative relationships, which is why we will work closely with the caregiver, their family and community partners to ensure the best possible outcomes for each and every child.
What is the cost for Behavioural Treatment Services?
Service packages are developed in collaboration with the family. A flat rate of $55 per hour is charged for direct and indirect time required to deliver and supervise treatment.
Additional costs for travel and program supplies may also be included.
