What training do ABA providers have?
ABA utilizes 2 types of providers: BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) and RBTs (Registered Behavior Technicians). BCBAs are required to get a master’s degree, fulfill relevant coursework, have 1500-2000 hours of supervised experience, and pass a certification test. RBTs are required to take a 40-hour course, complete a competency test to demonstrate application of ABA procedures and take a written test to show understanding of ABA principles.
Why is ABA effective?
ABA is a rigorous and systematic method of teaching, using only research-based strategies that have been shown to be effective through peer-reviewed studies.
Which is better: Home or Center-Based ABA?
There are different strengths to both settings. The home environment is where the child spends most of their time and is engaged in family routines. Therefore, it’s more beneficial to learn skills in that environment, where they would typically need to demonstrate the skills taught. A clinic is more structured and may be better for a child whose home environment has too many distractions to learn. It may also provide more social opportunities with peers. At Snowflakes ABA, LLC we provide services in the home and community. This helps generalize skills and may provide social skills opportunities as well. Depending on insurance, we may also provide services in school settings.
How many hours a week should my child receive?
There are 2 delivery models for ABA: Comprehensive and Focused. If a child has multiple affected developmental domains, they will receive a comprehensive treatment plan. If a child only has a limited number of behavioral deficits, they will receive focused ABA. A comprehensive plan will typically need 30-40 hours of treatment per week while a focused plan may only need 10-25 hours. Treatment is usually delivered 5 days a week to achieve the best results. In addition to these direct hours of therapy, parent training will be required for an hour or more per week to ensure the parents are carrying over the treatments while staff are not present.
Are your employees screened with a background check?
Yes, all employees get fingerprinting and a background check before delivering services.
What skills do you work on?
We work on any deficits associated with the medical criteria for autism in the DSM-V.

In addition we may work on things that appear to be educational or occupational in nature but are needed to reduce behaviors and function well in society.
How is ABA delivered?
A BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) evaluates your child and designs a plan based on the child’s unique needs. An RBT (Registered Behavior Analyst) or sometimes a BCBA delivers the treatment to the child throughout the week. The BCBA continues to supervise the RBT to ensure the plan is being executed correctly and data is collected and analyzed throughout the time your child is getting services to ensure progress is being made. The BCBA also meets with the parents once a week or more to help teach them how to deliver the treatment. ABA is most effective with family involvement.
