You don't have to travel and we will work around your schedule; it will save you time and will be more convenient than going to a speech therapy clinic.

When you sign up for ABA Therapy, there are a few parts of the process:


SCENARIO 1: If we are able to provide an in-person assessment with BCBA (location dependent)


1. In Person Behaviour Assessment by a (BCBA) Board Certified Behaviour Analyst. (1-2 HOURS)

Your assigned BCBA will meet your child, observe them in different contexts, and run a standardized test.


2. Pairing Session with ABA Therapist (1 HOUR)

The first session with your ABA Therapist is a billable one hour ‘pairing session’. This can take place either before or after the assessment. This is an opportunity for your ABA therapist to get to know your child, build a rapport with them, and become their best friend! The therapist will engage with your child in demand-free, playful interactions for the hour, encouraging your child to respond favourably to therapy.

3. *Program Development

The BCBA will take the results of the assessment and create a program that is unique, and catered to your child's needs. This includes the time for joint collaboration between the BCBA and the ABA Therapist about your child’s goals.

4. ABA Therapy - Consistent Week to Week Sessions

Sessions that are run by an ABA Therapist, 2-3 hours per session, 4-6 hours per week minimum.



SCENARIO 2: If we are only able to provide a virtual assessment with BCBA (location dependent)


1. Pairing Session with ABA Therapist (1 HOUR)

The pairing session with your ABA Therapist will happen before the virtual assessment. That way, your child will get to know their ABA Therapist before they come to facilitate the assessment.

It is a billable one hour ‘pairing session’. This can take place either before or after the assessment. This is an opportunity for your ABA therapist to get to know your child, build a rapport with them, and become their best friend! The therapist will engage with your child in demand-free, playful interactions for the hour, encouraging your child to respond favourably to therapy.

2. Virtual Behaviour Assessment with BCBA virtually + ABA Therapist in person (1-2 HOURS)

Your BCBA will meet your child virtually, observe them, and run standardized tests while the ABA Therapist assists in person with the facilitation of the assessment.

3. *Program Development

The BCBA will take the results of the assessment and create a program that is unique, and catered to your child's needs. This includes the time for joint collaboration between the BCBA and the ABA Therapist about your child’s goals.

4. ABA Therapy - Consistent Week to Week Sessions

Sessions that are run by an ABA Therapist, 2-3 hours per session, 4-6 hours per week minimum.



For both options 1 and 2:

Monthly Supervision by the BCBA

Once a month, your BCBA will reach out to you to arrange a visit (in person or virtual) where they will supervise your ABA Therapy. During this time, they will determine whether any changes or updates need to be made to the existing programming.

NOTE: An official Letter of Attestation will be provided to all families.

*Program development is mandatory for all OAP client's to develop a program for the current goals and for ABA therapy to be initiated. Program Development is completed as indirect hours.

**The supervision is mandatory for all OAP client's to evaluate the child's progress with the current goals.

You can use your OAP Funding towards our services! We can also be found on the OAP Provider List!
