1 | Scheduling Appointments
‣ You and your ABA provider(s) will create appointment schedules that accommodate your daily routines, client needs, and BIP goals.
‣ Appointment schedules are accessible through your client account with IBG, where they can be viewed and modified as needed.
2 | Creating “Lesson Plans” & Completing Appointments
‣ Your ABA provider(s) will coordinate specific service-delivery plans with you, such as appointment agendas and how intervention methods will be used. This ensures services continue to fit and address your needs and requests. It will take a little extra time to develop a solid routine in the beginning, but it quickly pays off once everyone understand the wheres, whens, whys, and hows of each appointment.
‣ Providers will use natural and contrived situations to teach skills outlined in the BIP, and manage problem behaviors as they arise. The settings, materials, and people involved will vary depending on the goals that are addressed, and will be determined when reviewing appointment agenda and plans.
‣ Providers electronically report on all goals and problem behaviors addressed during the appointment, which is automatically linked with progress reports, and shared with you.
3 | Collaboration & Building Personal Skills
‣ ABA provider(s) and caregivers will support each other to achieve client goals, personal goals, and to successfully follow BIP strategies. This is done during appointments, and monthly Team Meetings.
‣ Providers may work one-on-one with clients, model strategies for caregivers, or step back to observe & support caregivers while they practice using ABA strategies with the client.
4 | Ending Sessions
‣ The last few minutes of each appointment is reserved for discussions, questions and concerns between providers and caregivers. No session will end without an understanding of what occurred during the appointment, or what to expect for the next appointment.
