All students are provided the opportunity to have a "student day" each month. At this time, the team meets with the parent(s) to implement the student's current, targeted goals for the parents to observe how each are taught. During this time, parents are provided with the opportunity to implement each goal and the team is able to observe each other running each program, which in turn, assists in ensuring consistency among the student’s team.
Parents will also be given the opportunity to observe the Speech, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy IEP goals currently being implemented by each specialist.
Parents are given the opportunity to ask questions and provide any input they feel is necessary.
The second portion of the student day provides for the team to review the student’s data with the parents which allows parents to further understand the process of data based decisions, as well as being updated on the individual’s progress. .
Each week, the student’s team, including the Lead ABA Teacher and ABA Technicians, meet with a licensed, Board Certified Behavior Analyst to review each student's progress. During this clinic, the data for each targeted program is analyzed. Decisions are made with regard to next steps, such as adding or changing strategies to assist the student, terminating the goal, or continuing as currently implemented. Behavior plans are also monitored and discussed and necessary changes are made to the behavior plans at this time as well.
