At Days of Victory, each child we serve is a unique individual. As such, prior to beginning treatment, a thorough initial assessment will be conducted by a BCBA to assist in the development of a comprehensive and effective individualized treatment plan. During the assessment process, our families can expect direct observations of the child, parent/caregiver interviews and formal evaluations. Depending on the needs of the child, the assessment will include a combination of the following:
• Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)
• Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
• Pervasive Developmental Disorder Behavior Inventory (PDDBI)
• Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills-Revised (ABLLS-R)
• Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP)
Once the assessment process is complete, a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) will be developed in order to target behavior reduction as well as skill acquisition goals. This plan will be reviewed with the family and ongoing parent/caregiver training will be provided to ensure generalization of the skills into the home environment. Families can expect to receive assistance with skill acquisition goals including but not limited to:
||• Social Skills
|• Accepting “No"
|• Following Routines
||• Fine Motor Skills
||• Gross Motor Skills
Clinic Based Therapy
Intensive, 1:1 therapy sessions will take place in our clinic which focuses heavily on Natural Environmental Training (NET). We believe that early intervention is key and we have designed our clinic in such a way that learning and growing will be a joy. Focusing on empirically evidence based protocols, we teach children through exploration and interactions within their natural environment. Providing opportunities for children to learn within their natural environment affords them greater opportunities for generalization of newly developed skills into the home, school and community.
Days of Victory offers ongoing, comprehensive training in the school environment. School consultation services include, but are not limited to; attending Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, developing IEP goals, training staff and conducting classroom observations. Your child may also be eligible to recieve a 1:1 behavior therapist to shadow them throughout the school day to work on implementation of their BIP in the school environment.
