One-to-one services are provided based on the individual needs of the child and the family. The sessions combine structured learning with play-based activities to build skills needed in a group and community setting. Consistent one-to-one sessions combined with family coaching create positive relations within the family system. One-to-one therapy is provided in the environment that best meet the child’s need.
One-to-one therapy focuses on:
Through an initial assessment, challenging behaviors are identified. A Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) is included within the treatment which includes how to prevent, replace, and eliminate unwanted behaviors.
Fundamental communication such as reproducing sounds, words, and requesting are taught. More complex communication skills are gained allowing learners to participate in conversations with peers and family members.
Learners have the opportunity to gain independence in completing household chores, mealtime, dressing, potty training, and more.
Parent Coaching and Training
Parents receive real-time coaching from technicians during sessions. Individualized family training is scheduled with Clinical Supervisors to cover specific challenges. Parent training ensures the parent’s ability to become “around the clock” therapists.
Jacob’s Promise comprehensive telehealth plan includes but is not limited to: one-to-one therapy, Online Enrichment Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) supervision, and family training.
One-to-one therapy involves a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) and learner. The learner must have the appropriate pre-requisite skills to attend to a technician using telehealth format. Therapy sessions will follow a designated schedule (set by the BCBA supervisor) and include a variety of skill acquisition programming as well as behavior reduction/modification plans. Some skills that can be performed using a telehealth model during a therapy session include but are not limited to: manding, tacting, listener responding, motor imitation, echoics, spontaneous vocal behavior, intraverbals, routines, and linguistic structure. Specific skills will vary by the learner and have been designated by the BCBA after completing a skills assessment on the learner and developing an appropriate treatment plan for their skill level and needs. The RBT will follow the designated plan for the learner and receive ongoing supervision from the assigned BCBA regarding changes/updates to the learner’s program, increasing program difficulty after data review and targeted items mastered, etc.
