Benefit of Center-Based Services?
Center-based services have shown to be superior to home-based services for mastery of program targets and rate of mastery (Dixon, Burns, Granpeesheh, Amarasinghe, Powell, & Linstead, 2017).
Increased treatment hours increase the number of targets mastered.
Center-based services provide a more structured learning environment to train parents and caregivers. Furthermore, the quality and quantity of therapy supervision by board certified behavior analysts of direct care professionals is improved with center-based services.
Qualified Provider of ABA Services?
A qualified professional, licensed clinical psychologist with training in applied behavior analysis or a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), should be designing and supervising ABA services.
Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBA) are certified to provide direct services to individuals with autism.
