About the Program
Partnership programs offer schools the opportunity to provide services to their students in partnership with an established Behavior Analytic agency. This model provides supervisory staff educated in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to train and supervise public school personnel working with students with intensive educational needs. Additionally, case supervision, ongoing training, and curriculum are provided.
Individualized services are also offered to provide inclusion support staff to increase the likelihood that children with learning challenges can remain within the public school classroom. Full or part time behavioral therapists are available to work in the classroom in support of the public school lead teachers.
Intensive ABA Model
The model provides a trained 1:1 Behavior Therapist to work with students within the public school setting and Licensed Behavior Analyst provides comprehensive clinical supports and oversight.
- Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA) conducts a comprehensive behavioral assessment and skills assessment to determine student’s needs.
- LBA collaborates with the PPT team to generate an assessment derived educational and behavioral plan.
- The LBA will engage in data based decisions to assess the efficacy of treatment and determine modifications to the plan.
- Every effort will be made to fade the need for intensive services and increase student independence.
- Advantages to school districts include increased opportunities for inclusion and access to typical peers, significant cost savings vs. out of district placement and transportation.
- Access to a team of BCBA-Ds and licensed psychologists with many years of experience for difficult cases.
- Beacon provides materials, curriculum, and reinforcers for students, as well as staffing coverage.
Hybrid ABA Model
The model consists of an agreed mix of Beacon Behavior Therapist and school para-professionals/tutors who receive comprehensive clinical and educations support from an LBA. This model offers the advantages of the Intensive Model for school districts looking to serve more children and build capacity and is most appropriate for services provided to a classroom, program or an entire school
