What Makes An Effective Home-Based ABA Provider?


Sunday, February 04, 2007

Michael Goldberg; Autism Bulletin blog


"...David Celiberti, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) with a private practice in New Jersey, is a leading advocate in the profession for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) providers to work closely with parents....Celiberti outlined what he considers the characteristics of good parent-provider relationships, and what makes for good quality services for home-based ABA programs. ... Celiberti aimed his remarks at behavior analysts, with the knowledge that others among the 1,600 attendees included educators, advocates and parents.)...


Ten issues Celiberti highlighted:



1. Build a working understanding of behavioral terminology, so they don't sound off-putting to parents. Resources to help include the Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT), the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies, and a group within The Association for Behavior Analysis (ABA) International called the Autism Special Interest Group (SIG), which publishes an Revised Guidelines for Consumers of Applied Behavior Analysis Services to Individuals with Autism and Related Disorders.


2. Understand that history with past providers can color a family's attitude and approach to a new provider


3. Communicate concerns efficiently, clearly and early. Don't wait for problems to fester.


4. Make feedback constructive and balanced.

5. Share information on cultural matters when needed. (Religious observances for example.)

6. Expect data-driven decision-making from all providers. What works when depends on what the evidence shows. (This was a key take-away from the conference, as other dispatches here will show.)

7. Tell ABA providers if you (or your spouse) can't take data, so an ABA provider can make alternative arrangements.

8. Be open and honest if you are taking part in alternatives to ABA, including biomedical therapies. An open dialogue is essential, Celiberti said.

9. Network with other families and share experiences and resources with them.

10. Understand your legal rights and how to best advocate for your child. Celiberti recommended Wrightslaw as a good online resource.("...)
