Camino’s 4-Step Approach to ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is an effective, evidence-based treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

ABA therapy services in Albuquerque is a scientific approach to understanding and implementing meaningful changes in behavior. ABA therapy involves examining the role of environmental factors in shaping behavior and finding ways to modify these factors.

At Camino, we offer compassionate, personalized ABA treatment options for both children and teens with ASD.

Below, we’ll discuss our 4-step approach to ABA therapy in Albuquerque.

Our 4-step approach to ABA therapy in Albuquerque examines the following things:

Early intervention can significantly improve developmental outcomes and provide children with the necessary skills and support they need to thrive throughout their lives. Although we do not provide autism testing, many children can start treatment prior to their evaluation. Camino will help you find a diagnostician that best fits your needs. Scroll down below to see our referred Autism Evaluation Practitioners names, phone numbers and locations. 

Once your child receives an autism diagnosis, we can conduct an initial Behavior Analytic Assessment.

Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) conduct a two-part initial assessment, to establish a child’s developmental profile and current initial behavioral targets for treatment. The first goal in a behavior analytic assessment is to gather information about your child’s developmental history, medical background, and current behavior through an in-depth interview with you.

Next, our professionals will assess your child’s current repertoire of skills, which involves one-on-one observation and interaction with your child. This allows us to identify strengths and weaknesses and tailor the intervention accordingly. We’ll also prescribe treatment hours. 

Expressive and Receptive Communication Skills

Expressive and receptive communication skills are pivotal for effective social interactions and learning.

We’ll assess how well your child can express their needs, wants, and thoughts, as well as their ability to understand and comprehend language and instructions.

Visual Perceptual Skills

Visual perceptual skills are another area of assessment, as they play a vital role in understanding the environment, recognizing shapes, colors, and objects, and processing visual information.

Social Skills

Social skills are assessed to determine how well your child interacts with peers, adults, and the larger social environment. This includes initiating and maintaining conversations, understanding social cues, and demonstrating appropriate social behaviors.

Imitation Skills

Imitation, a fundamental learning process, is evaluated to see how well the individual can mimic actions and behaviors demonstrated by others, which is crucial for learning from modeling.

Play Skills

Play skills assessment helps us understand how your child engages in activities such as symbolic play, turn-taking, and imaginative play, which are essential for social and cognitive development.

Finally, we’ll thoroughly assess challenging behaviors, seeking to identify the underlying causes and triggers.

The results of this assessment allow us to create a tailored intervention plan that addresses individual needs, develop a comprehensive and individualized plan for ABA treatment, and helps your child make significant progress in their behavioral, social, and cognitive development.

Once the assessment process is complete, Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) will collaborate with you to develop an individualized treatment plan consisting of three main components.

Skill Acquisition Goals

Skill acquisition goals focus on the development of new skills and behaviors.

These goals can encompass a wide range of areas:

BCBAs work closely with individuals and their families to identify specific skills that need improvement and set measurable objectives. They’ll break down each skill into smaller, achievable steps and utilize evidence-based techniques to teach and reinforce the desired behaviors.

Behavior Reduction Plan

Behavior reduction plans are designed to address challenging behaviors that may interfere with your child’s functioning and daily life:

Based on the behavior analytic assessment results, BCBAs develop strategies to replace the challenging behavior with more appropriate alternatives.

These strategies may include teaching the individual alternative coping skills, implementing reinforcement systems, and modifying the environment to prevent triggers.

Parent Goals

ABA therapy recognizes the crucial role of parents and caregivers in the success of the treatment. Parent goals are included in the treatment plan to empower and support you in implementing ABA strategies consistently at home.

You’ll be provided with training and guidance on how to reinforce and generalize the skills learned during therapy sessions to the natural environment.

As a parent or caregiver, there may be a variety of goals you wish to achieve:

By actively involving you in the therapy process, our treatment plan promotes the generalization of skills and ensures that progress is maintained beyond the therapy sessions.

Parent meetings and re-evaluations are essential aspects of our ABA therapy in Albuquerque.

Monthly Family Guidance Meetings

Treatment will begin with monthly family guidance meetings, which will provide an opportunity for you to stay informed about your child’s progress, understand the strategies being used, and learn how you can reinforce and generalize skills at home.

The ABA therapist can also discuss the specific goals being targeted, review data collected during sessions, and address any concerns or questions you may have.

By keeping you involved and knowledgeable, these meetings ensure that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same objectives.

Semiannual Re-Evaluations

In addition to meeting with you regularly, we’ll conduct re-evaluations every six months. These re-evaluations serve as a checkpoint to assess the progress made and determine if any modifications need to be made to the treatment plan.

At Camino, our ABA treatment plans are highly individualized, as we understand that the needs of a child may change over time.

By conducting regular re-evaluations, our ABA therapists can ensure the therapy remains effective and continues to address your child’s evolving needs.

ABA Program Elements

ABA programs are meant to be tailored to the needs of each patient they benefit. They should be flexible enough to help patients reach various behavior goals using an array of techniques and approaches.

Planning a program begins with thorough testing of a learner’s needs, skills, and living conditions. Treatment goals are established based on a combination of these factors, including the patient’s family situation.

Typically, treatment goals fall into one or more of several categories, including social skills, play, motor skills, academic skills, communication, behavior reduction, and self-care.

Above all, ABA program tests and treatment plans should not be overwhelming. Instead, they should be broken down into step-by-step processes to help patients reach their goals over time

At Camino we also help families find the right autism testing provider  for their child. We are a New Mexico-based ABA provider that believes that successful outcomes become possible when science and compassion meet.
