Frequently Asked Questions

What type of therapy do you do?

We use the principles of behavior analysis to help your child reach a functional level of independence. This is done through establishing why your child behaves the way they do (for attention, escaping something, etc.), what they like to do (play, toys, etc.), and how this information can help to increase good behaviors and decrease undesirable behaviors. 

Why focus on parent training?

You know your child the best. We are here to help you set up your child for success to become an independent person capable of learning new things and applying them effectively to their environments. 

How long do individual sessions last?

Individual sessions last 50 minutes and occur between 1 and 3 times a week depending on what works best for your child clinically and for your family financially. 

How long does therapy last?

Generally, we have found that therapy will last between 3 and 4 months with you coming in on a weekly basis works when focusing on 1-3 key goals. However, this is highly dependent on your child's development and what works best for your family. Some families benefit from bi-weekly meetings, 4 week modules, year long modules, etc. We re-evaluate every 4-6 weeks to ensure that we are moving in the best direction for your child and family.
