Since the California Autism Insurance Law – SB 946 – passed in 2011, the BHPN has expanded to meet the unprecedented demand for services in Northern California.
We have a growing network of nearly 100 behavioral health and therapy providers to serve our growing client base. The list below represents some of the providers in the BHPN that provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy.
Applied Behavior Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientific discipline that focuses on the analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of social and other environmental modifications to produce meaningful changes in behavior. Based on assessment and observations, ABA programs make changes to an individual’s environment to promote changes to that person’s behavior.
ABA is based on the fact that an individual’s behavior is determined by past and current environmental events in conjunction with genetic and physiological variables. When included in a client’s treatment for autism, ABA focuses on addressing the problems of the disorder by altering the individual’s social and learning environments. The focus of ABA is both on skill acquisition (behaviors to increase) as well as behavior reduction for maladaptive behaviors. These, when occurring together, create meaningful change to an individual’s behavior.
- 3-Tier Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): A model of treatment where a paraprofessional works directly with a client 1:1 in the home or in a clinic, implementing the treatment plan designed by the assigned Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or high-level supervisor with the support of a mid-level clinician.
- Parent-Led Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): A parent-mediated approach to ABA where parents are put at the forefront of their child’s treatment with the support of a BCBA and a mid-level supervisor.
- Parent Training: An approach to treatment that is focused on the skills of the parent rather than the child. This model of treatment is less intensive than Parent-Led ABA or 3-tier ABA and focuses on specific skills of effective parenting.
Occupational Therapy helps clients increase their level of functioning and become more independent. Therapies can include activities of daily living and task-oriented therapeutic activities designed to improve or develop functioning.
Speech Therapy works to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders. Speech therapists work with clients to improve speech and language capabilities through a variety of speech and behavioral health treatments.
