A firm understanding of typical child development will aid practitioners in creating developmentally appropriate treatment plan goals and objectives. Clinicians also need to work with families to disseminate critical child developmental milestones. Information about child development, specifically early warning signs need to be supplied to parents so that they can be prepared for visits with their child’s health care provider to request referrals if necessary.

While efforts for early detection are admirable there is still restricted access to services including a confirmed diagnosis and access to services, especially in rural communities and for certain demographic groups. Delayed diagnoses and access to treatment both have clinical implications that will be discussed. Finally, treatment planning needs to be evidence-based and should be linked to established curriculum and literature.

Providing empirically validated methods of instruction to clients is one of the most important roles taken on by Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Using a service delivery model that not only sparks a client’s interest and motivation, but that can also be implemented by parents is ideal and achievable. The use of activity-based instruction, which is child directed, and embeds individual goals and objectives in routine planned or child-initiated activities, will allow Behavior Analysts to meet that goal.

Once skill deficits are identified by using a comprehensive assessment, goals should be developed and prioritized based on function, how well the skill will generalize across people and environments, and developmental appropriateness. Once goals are selected, the individual targets can be embedded into activities that are of high interest to the client. When a client is highly motivated and the activity is part of the typical family routine, the opportunity for parent engagement increases. Strategies on how to include identified targets into various activities that are meaningful to families, as well as how to take meaningful data on selected targets will be discussed.

Testimonials

What clinical professionals have to say about our Webcasts

"Thanks so much!  I appreciate your focus on quality and how to ensure you relate the topics back directly to the BCBA application.  The pharmacological components were also great in this one.  I had the luxury of working in a post-acute clinic with 3 doctors on staff.  We had access to FMRI and the doctors requested our graphs when making medication changes.  I clearly took it for granted … most won’t have such collaboration!"
