Autism Partnership’s Team
Treatment Analysts (TA)
Treatment Analysts conduct 1:1 or group intervention sessions designed to teach communication, cognitive, play, social and self-help skills. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques are utilized during all interventions. Important behavioral goals are targeted including reduction of stereotypic behavior, increasing tolerance, coping with stress and eliminating disruptive behavior. If clinically warranted, Treatment Analysts provide shadow support to children while they attend school or activities with friends in the community. The number of weekly intervention hours is determined by the individual needs of the child: age, functioning level, length of treatment, school placement, etc. Direct intervention ranges from 15 to 30-40 hours per week.
Treatment Coordinators (TC)
Treatment Coordinators (TC) provide assessment and program development. They monitor progress and make necessary refinements in the child’s program plan. Treatment Coordinators supervise and assist staff and parents with proper program implementation. They support all team members and parents in becoming a “behavioral expert” for the child. Treatment Coordinators are also involved with data review, report writing and facilitate communication with the school program.
Program Developers (PD)
Program Developers (PD) provide evaluation, program development and modification, behavioral observations and as necessary, psychological testing. Program Developers are involved in individual consultations with the family and Treatment Coordinator, as well as, supervision of staff throughout clinic meetings.
Based on individual need, a child’s program may also include:
- Social Group Sessions and “Play Dates”
- IEP Preparation and Attendance
- Parent Training
- Program Assessment
- Psychological Testing
- Counseling for Children and/or Parents
