Having a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in the center and directly involved in your child’s ABA program, rather than remotely, offers several important advantages.

Having a BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) directly overseeing your child’s ABA program is incredibly valuable for several reasons. First and foremost, it ensures that your child is receiving the highest quality of care and intervention. BCBA’s are highly trained professionals with expertise in behavior analysis, autism, and evidence-based interventions. Their presence ensures that the program is based on the most up-to-date research and tailored to meet your child’s specific needs.

Having a BCBA on-site allows for real-time supervision and monitoring of your child’s progress. They can directly observe your child’s behaviors, assess their skill acquisition, and make immediate adjustments to the intervention plan as needed. This hands-on approach enables the BCBA to provide targeted guidance and support to the therapists working with your child, ensuring that they are implementing the intervention strategies effectively.

Additionally, having a BCBA present at the program site allows for better collaboration and communication between all members of the treatment team, including therapists, parents, and other professionals involved in your child’s care. This interdisciplinary approach ensures that everyone is working together towards common goals and that any concerns or issues can be addressed promptly.

Overall, having a BCBA directly involved in your child’s ABA program provides peace of mind knowing that your child is receiving the highest level of care and support. Their expertise and guidance are invaluable in maximizing your child’s progress and helping them reach their full potential.
