How to choose ABA ?
Just as a medical treatment program should be directed by a qualified doctor, ABA programs for learners with autism should be designed and supervised by a board certified Behavior Analyst and the therapy will be delivered by a registered behavior technician(RBT) .
“Do Not” choose ABA sessions where the child is not getting the “DIRECT” supervision of a behavior analyst at least “ONE HOUR/WEEK”.An ABA therapist without regular supervision could cost you a lot and achieve very little,or even worse,could set back child’s development in some areas.
Choose a trained ABA therapist who is supervised directly under a Board Certified Behavior Analyst on a regular basis. Unfortunately some who claim to offer ABA lacks the minimum requirements in education.
Always check the credentials of those who claim to be qualified in Behavior Analysis . Make sure the behavior analyst is listed under certificant registry of BACB.
