COLLABORATION

INFORMATION SHARING = TYING IT ALL TOGETHER

 

Coordination of Care

Our communication with other professionals is fundamental to the consistency across treatments and your child’s progress. Our desired outcomes come into effect with a clear consensus between providers. We discuss which methods are valid and which goals precede others along a scale of priority. We understand our scope of practice and must stay attuned to other disciplines involved in the treatment process. For best results, we provide open dialogue and collaboration with the following professionals:

a. Neurologists and/ or Diagnosing Physicians
b. Speech and Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists
c. Special Education Teachers

 
 

Neurologists and/ or Diagnosing Physicians

We see it as essential to communicate with professionals who diagnose and prescribe treatments to our patients. Depending on the symptoms, ABA Therapy can take a significant part of weekly treatment time for a child. We want to ensure that Physicians get treatment updates to consider in their decision making. For children who take medication, it is important to monitor and share the effects of medication on treatment to ensure best outcomes.

Speech and Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists

Given our broad clinical curriculum, we share information with Speech and Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists. Specifically, about a child’s language, play, and social interaction skill goals. ABA therapy uses a different set of methods as teaching tools. However, we almost always work in a unified direction.

Special Education Teachers

Depending on the classroom setting, we either support children directly or conduct observational visits. We collaborate with Special Education Teachers for strategies applied to classrooms. We attend Individual Educational Plan (IEP) meetings. Discuss goals, progress, and future directions toward integration to classrooms that best fit a child’s needs.successful. We will show you this difference.
