 ABC school

Location: Sacramento

 

Applied Behavior Consultants, Inc. opened its first classroom for children diagnosed with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder in September 1994. ABC’s projection was to fill a classroom with 10 students. Since that time we have been continually expanding to meet the needs of families and their children in Sacramento and other sites.

Like ABC’s in-home and center based programs, our NPS school concentrates on planning and teaching generalization from the very start of each lesson designed from the child’s Individual Educational Plan (IEP). To establish successful and effective generalization of learned and mastered IEP goals and objectives, ABC uses its 5 level teaching process, R.E.A.L. (Recreating Environments to Accelerate Learning; Terzich, 1996).

Specialized Academic Instruction

ABC School provides instructional services based on the student’s Individual Education Program (IEP). The IEP team determines how Specialized Academic Instruction (SAI) will be implemented based on the child’s individual needs. SAI is defined as “adapting, as appropriate to the needs of the child with a disability the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that he or she can meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the public agency that apply to all children.” (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 34, Section 300.39(b)(3)).

ABC specializes in applying the principles of Behavior Analysis to the learning environment with the goal of having students generalize their skills and maximize their potential so that each student can access their learning environment.



Our ABC school is currently accepting referral for enrollment. Please contact Kerry Madden Solliday.

Intensive ABA Program

ABC school is designed to meet the individual needs of children who are diagnosed with Autism or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) between the ages of 3 and 22 years of age.

Intensive Behavioral Treatment (IBT) is provided within a language-based ABA educational environment where teaching is highly structured for acquisition of new skills. The teaching environment becomes less structured as the student demonstrates the use of skills learned in natural settings and across routines throughout the day. Within ABC’s unique generalization framework, each child’s curriculum teaches critical language skills, functional activities, socialization, initiation/spontaneity and generalization of mastered concepts/skills. These skills are built into every student’s educational program and individualized to meet his or her learning style and unique needs. 

The overall goal is to prepare the student for reintegration into his/her neighborhood school. 

Each classroom has a credentialed teacher, a lead behavior technician and a number of behavior technicians. In addition, a Senior Behavior Analyst or a Supervising Behavior Analyst (SBA) oversees every two classrooms of 10 students to provide on-going training, feedback and troubleshooting to teachers. To ensure the quality and effectiveness of each child’s ABA educational curriculum, and to maintain a safe learning environment for each child and ABC staff, each site has two tiers of clinical administration and an HR department. 

ABC's classrooms provide a 1:1.5 technician to student ratio for student’s age 3 to 9, and a 1:2 ratio for students age 9 to 12. Initially, a newly enrolled student may receive 1:1 instruction until the teacher determines when and under what conditions the student will benefit from group instruction. In some cases, students will work in groups of 3-4 students, when they are ready for this level, to assist in the transition to a less restrictive environment (LRE).

Extracurricular Social Integration Programs

ABC School Sacramento offers art and fitness to all students. The art program and fitness program provide opportunities for our students to expand their interests and engage in other social activities.

 
 

telehealth

Through ABC’s mission, we have the ability to provide ABA services through HIPAA compliant webcam consultation. This remote consultation allows us to consult with individuals who cannot physically come to our office/schools to receive ABA services. 

ABC believes the ideal situation to supervise, monitor and develop a client program, is regular face to face contact where our Behavior Analyst can observe the client's behavior and the activities of the therapists and offer appropriate feedback and direction. However, this may not be feasible at times, due to time, distance and financial constraints. In those cases we can do video consultation.

Requirements

In order to provide this service, individuals need to have the following equipment: 

  1. Web camera - Many laptops come with this standard feature. You can also purchase one at any computer/electronics store.

  2. High speed internet - Webcam consultation requires high speed internet connection. Please check with your current provider to see if it is capable for streaming live webcam sessions.

  3. Authorization from a funding source offering this service.

This requires the ability to use technology that would allow the observation of the client and therapists and interaction with our Behavior Analyst. Additionally, the only other technical requirements would be the ability to transmit data and video to the Consultant. We have done this with YouTube and file sharing programs. The specifics of what technology to use would be worked out in an initial interaction. All services ensure security on information shared in these video format options.

Consultation

The typical structure of ABC's web cam consultation session is to conduct a brief assessment of an individual's behavior deficits or excesses as they relate to the individual's daily routines. Specific goals will be targeted. Hands on implementation will be reviewed during the web cam sessions and the Behavior Consultant will provide feedback in regards to the overall progress made by the team. Troubleshooting questions could also be answered throughout the web cam session. Follow-up meetings will be scheduled in accordance to our overall recommendations. 

Consultation hours may range from 2-15 per calendar month, depending on what the contracting party is interested in and what clinical recommendations are made. ABC offers an initial assessment, intervention consultation, follow-up training, and indirect consultative services. All of these fees will be charged at an hourly rate. 

  • Initial assessment: approximately 2 to 3 hours with general intervention recommendations

  • Intervention consultation: approximately 1.5 to 5 hours weekly with on-going data requirements and analysis, lesson development and progression recommendations and trouble shooting 

  • Follow-up training: generally 1 to hours long and recommended at least every 2 months to ensure the quality of service delivered 

  • Indirect services: individualized to meet client needs

Fee

Fees for all services: $100 per hour

Consideration in fees: Should you prefer to have direct (face to face) ABA Services that would include a Functional Assessment with written program recommendations, Initial Workshop Training, Program Development and Webcam Follow-up Consultation please contact Mari Ueda-Tao. This programming alternative will result in a reduction of fees for follow-up consultation fees.

BCBA and BCaBA Supervision Hours

ABC typically provides supervision hours to persons for experience counting towards their BCBA or BCaBA requirements as an employee of ABC. However, certain exceptions can be made when conflict of interests are not an issue. Hence our preference is to refer the putative supervisee to other vendors of such services.
