Outreach services are provided for children and youth (18 months to 21 years). We provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) home programs, behavior consultation, training for instructional teams, inclusion support, educational evaluations, and supervision for early intervention teams. We offer 3 types of outreach services:
Our home program services serve children receiving early intervention, children of various ages who need after- school support, and children who are home schooled.
Supervision and coordination are provided for ABA programming to ensure a comprehensive home program. After a full assessment, we implement developmentally appropriate and functional goals/objectives. The program is continually monitored to maximize children’s progress
We also provide supervision for Early Intervention (EI) programs
We are strong advocates for high quality science-based Early Interventions. We urge families to begin intensive treatment as early as possible in an effort to minimize the need for intensive interventions later on.
We believe it is important for families to seek out BCBA supervision for the ABA in their EI programs. In helping children begin the journey to meeting their full potential, EI ABA treatment is effective only if conducted correctly using best practices.
A: We can help with the goals/objectives, staff training, and coordination of your services. Although it may feel as if your child is too young to have so much therapy, consider the following:
A: We will provide you with daily communication logs, formal progress reports, and ask you to join the team clinics, where the details of the program will be discussed.
A: Families or school districts will often hire the home program staff. Based on our staff availabilities, we may recommend instructors from the Learners' Compass team of professionals. Staff training is offered and sessions may be monitored by a BCBA on an as need basis.
A: Each home program is unique. The number of hours depend on the severity of needs and the family's availability. We will work with you to design the best home program for your child. For supervision, we recommend:
A: Call us here at Learners' Compass for an appointment. We will complete a needs assessment with you. It takes about 4-6 weeks to get program up and running. Week 1-2: We recommend 10 hours (maximum) of consultation. This includes observation, parent interviews, creating the treatment package and making materials. Week 3-6: We recommend 6 hours (maximum) of consultation. This includes overlaps with the staff and team meetings for training. After this start up period, we will be available for 3 hours of weekly consultation to maintain the program.
We collaborate with educators in the inclusion setting to help support the child in succeeding in one of the most important transitions he/she will make.
We address social skills, academic modification, independence in classroom activities, and behavior management. Parental involvement is encouraged to bridge gaps between home and school settings.
A: Shadowing, Collaboration, and Monitoring are all essential components of inclusion...
Behavioral services are provided on an as-needed basis for families, agencies, and school districts to help learners with behavioral challenges in the home, school, and community settings.
We believe each child is unique, and each challenge has a solution rooted in the science of behaviorism. Solutions are systemically matched to the reason/function of the behavior to teach appropriate replacement behavior that is socially acceptable and will help increase the child’s independence as well as appropriate coping skills and, consequently, self-esteem.
