  • Electronic Data Collection- Staying up to date with available technology for our field to improve the service we provide is always at the top of our priority list. Behavior TLC has adopted an electronic data collection system to ensure proper confidentiality, increase the rate of learning, and allow more detailed and accurate data collection. With electronic data collection, our BCBA’s are able to update programs from anywhere at any time. Also, the therapists are able to communicate with the BCBA’s and Lead Therapists through the system more efficiently than with paper and pencil data. We currently reserve our electronic data collection systems for those clients averaging 15 hours per week or more.

BTLC’s Summer ABA Program is not the loose schedule of summer camp or the rigorous schedule of an all-day clinical ABA program, but something in the middle that is geared towards those children who need structured support through the summer months.
  • Clinic-based ABA services
  • Assesment-based individualized curriculum
  • “Camp-style” activities and visitors

In Home ABA + Consultation

For those clients whose needs do not fit into our other models, we do offer a consultation service. This service can be used on an hourly basis with one of our BCBA’s or BCaBA’s as a provider. Often the consultation service is a parent training program where the therapist meets with the parent to discuss issues and guides the parent to implement a behavior plan in the home. This service can also be used for one of our therapists to attend ARD meetings or provide training to other caregivers or family members. This is an excellent way to extend therapy services into the home to help enhance development.

Not every client will fit into one of our established models or require treatment at our clinics in Houston. For those that don’t, we offer an ABA therapy consultation service designed to individualize the process and provide training to caregivers and family members. The service is provided on an hourly basis to create a scalable solution using one of our BcBA’s or BCaBA’s as the provider.

For parents, the consultation service is a training program that allows the therapist to guide them on difficult issues and create a behavior plan for the home. It may also be used for one of our therapists to attend ARD meetings or to provide training for caregivers or other family members.

What occurs during the ABA consult?

The consultation allows us to help you provide ABA therapy at home.  We’ll start by learning more about your family and household.  We’ll discuss day-to-day issues, review handouts explaining ABA principles, and talk about goals. Additionally, we’ll ask key questions to help us design and tailor a plan that will best fit you and your child’s needs:

  • What will make your day-to-day easier?
  • What behaviors can we work on together to strengthen your relationship between you and your child?
  • What can we do to help your child meet goals like making friends and being independent?

The initial goal is to cover six general ABA topics as an overview and then focus the discussion on the client’s specific needs.  Parents and caregivers will walk away with a better understanding of the following:

  • ABA therapy overview:  What it is and how it is helpful
  • How to identify target behaviors for their child
  • How to navigate a behavior plan

What to Expect from the Consultation Service

We review handouts that explain the basic ABA principles and help establish program goals. We’ll give out homework that encourages you to try different things at home and write down the results for review during the next session. This allows us to look at individual situations objectively and develop actionable solutions.

Each consultation is made based on your schedule and need. Sessions range from several times a week to just once a month, depending on your situation. They are fully scalable, as well. Once you meet your established goals, we can slow down. After completing the program, you can still make refresher consultation appointments if you get off track or a new behavior pops up.

What is the cost of an ABA Consult?

Consultation appointments are made with a BCBA and are billed at an hourly rate of $105 per hour.  Insurance policies do cover this type of service and we will only charge a daily copay depending on your plan.

Club TLC-Afterschool Program

This program focuses on homework help and social skills for our elementary-intermediate aged students. Each student receives one-on-one assistance and lesson plans are geared towards clients’ specific goals as indicated by assessment and parent report.

Learn More!

Club TLC is a social skills group using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to increase a student’s higher level communication. Social skills focus on conversation, body language, developing friendships, manners, acceptable public behaviors, how to handle conflict, and much more.

Each Club TLC group boasts a one-on-one ratio in the group environment. This allows each student to focus on their individual goals as determined through assessment while still benefitting from working together with their peers.

Included in Club TLC curriculum is time to work on homework as well as individual goals. Homework time is geared more towards decreasing behavior barriers during homework time and teaching the student how to tackle homework successfully. The focus is not on learning the academic skill or what traditional “tutoring” might address. Individual goals can range anywhere from how to give a compliment to how to tie your shoes.

All progress is recorded and programming decisions are made based on data. Each student goes home with a “How I Did Today” sheet detailing their progress for that day and a handout on what the lesson was along with a small homework assignment. At Behavior TLC, communication with parents is a top priority as we feel it is significant to our students’ success.

Parent Communication

At Behavior TLC we are dedicated to giving our families the support they need. In order to do that we must ensure continuous communication so you know how your child is doing. We provide this cooperative environment in a variety of ways:

Learn More!

  • Daily Notes – Every client leaves each session with a daily note hand-written by the therapist who worked with them that day. This note details how the programs went, what the client did well on and what they need to practice more. We can also detail any individualized requests such as food intake, bathrooming, language, etc.
  • Monthly Progress Notes – Every client receives a monthly progress note. This note details the quantifiable progress on each skill and behavior plan. You will get a summary of progress and the future goals for the program.
  • Quarterly Parent Meetings – Parents are welcome to call a meeting at ANY time. However, we will ask you for a meeting each quarter to review progress, check in with how things are going at home, and look at future goals.
  • Observation – We have an open door policy for any parent to watch any session at any time. We encourage parents to use the camera room to watch sessions so as not to disturb the therapy session.
