ABA Therapy duration is dependent on the hours approved hours after initial assessment is done by the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). It can be anywhere 17 to 30 hours per week on average. It should be noted that ABA Therapy approval solely depends on the child’s need and the severity of diagnosis. Once a final approval is determined, the schedule of ABA Therapy is arranged directly with the child’s primary caregiver, A1A Case Manager and the RBT and BCBA

A caregiver is defined as the child’s parent, legal guardian, teacher (in the school), nurse (in PPEC) or the A1A clinical team if child is receiving services in our A1A Treatment Center. The RBT provides individualized therapy as indicated in the treatment plan formulated by the BCBA. The RBT is also supervised directly by the BCBA on a weekly basis. In addition, A1A provides parent training to make sure parents and caregivers receive routine education and follow-ups to make sure treatment plan remains consistent.
