Questions to ask your Provider during consultation

Here are some questions you should consider asking the ABA provider during your first free consultation:

  1. How many therapists will be working with my child?
  2. What sort of training do your therapists receive? How often?
  3. How much direct supervision do your therapists receive from BCBAs weekly?
  4. How do you manage safety concerns?
  5. What does a typical ABA session look like?
  6. Do you offer home-based or clinic-based therapy?
  7. How do you determine goals for my child? Do you consider input from parents?
  8. How often do you re-evaluate goals?
  9. How is progress evaluated?
  10. How many hours per week can you provide ABA services?
  11. Do you have a wait list?
  12. How many BCBAs do you have on your staff?
  13. How many behavioral therapists do you have?

These questions can help you evaluate whether a provider will be a good fit for your family or not. Remember to trust your instincts as well!
