No, we will offer treatment as long as it remains helpful to the client. We are particularly skilled at transitioning the client to an appropriate environment (e.g. public or private school) when treatment is near completion.
We have anywhere from 10-20 children on a particular day.
Absolutely! In addition to the social skills training we provide on a one-to-one basis, we also provide frequent peer-to-peer social opportunities with close monitoring and therapeutic assistance.
Our clients have interactions with a variety of other children, many of whom are within an appropriate developmental and age range.
Each client’s treatment is completely individualized and personalized based on Applied Behavior Analysis – Discrete Trial Training (ABA-DTT) guidelines. A Naturalized Curriculum is also implemented prior to the completion of treatment.
We know that timely treatment is of the essence and we will work hard to get you started as quickly as possible.
The majority of our clients move on to a regular school, whether that be public or private school. We are happy to help assist in choosing an appropriate school and then the transition to that school. We use a systematic fading approach, and offer school shadowing, to ensure that the transition to school is positive and smooth.
TYAP currently has six Board Certified Behavior Analysts on staff, including three at the doctoral level. We also have several staff members who are in the process of earning their BCBA certification.
The number of RBTs we have fluctuates. Beginning September 1, 2021, all behavior therapists are required to have their Registered Behavior Technician certification.
Your child will be assigned a team with a small number of highly skilled and qualified individuals. Team members may rotate to promote generalization.
The BCBAs are constantly on-site and watching the therapy live via camera to closely monitor that each child is receiving the best treatment and making excellent progress.
TYAP has one of the strongest, most rigorous training programs in the industry. We have a dedicated team of staff trainers who spend months preparing each new therapist to work independently and pass their RBT examination.
We offer primarily clinic-based services. Periodic training may take place in the home for very specific behaviors.
We are happy to include parents in the treatment process. Please call us to discuss what this may look like for your child.
TYAP is a one-stop-shop that provides a combination of ABA, speech, and occupational therapy. However, if you have an outside provider that you feel a particular connection, we will be happy to accommodate that time into your child’s scheduled hours.
Yes! At pick-up, an RBT will provide a summary of your child’s daily activities and progress, along with sharing any important updates.
No. But please be advised that the process to begin treatment may take approximately one month from start to finish.
We allow registered service animals if necessary.
No, the evaluations and Parent/Teacher forms must be scored and interpreted before a detailed report is written. This can take a few days to a few weeks depending on how fast we receive the forms back.
We offer virtual tele-sessions as well.
With cases rising again we do recommend wearing a mask if you are not vaccinated. Over 80% of our staff is vaccinated but we still wear our masks for your protection and ours.
We have multiple bilingual individuals on staff and are happy to work with an interpreter when needed.
The majority of our appointments are offered on Monday through Friday.
Depending on the needs of our clients and staff availability, we will get you scheduled within days or a few weeks at most.
We look forward to meeting you and learning more about how we might be able to help you and your family. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns – we are here to help you!
