Welcome to our Clinical Corner! We’ve talked about our theme of being the best provider of services for children with autism. This year we’ve been working across our locations on multiple projects to continue to enhance our skills. Here are the clinical priorities we’re focusing on.
Some of the key highlights include training our teams to use the world around them to teach in an even more playful and naturalistic way, focusing on social reinforcement as our primary goal to teach new behavior, and taking a closer look at our system of measurement to ensure efficient progress.
As we look ahead to the next few months, we have several exciting and challenging projects we’re actively working on. Here’s a quick sneak peek at our clinical priorities list:
- Enhancing our consultant training
- Continued development of key clinical processes:
- BIP’s (Behavior Intervention Plans)
- Program Binder Organization
- Data Rules
- Error Analysis
- Case reviews
- Mand flow data sheets
- Implementation of Precision teaching & Fluency based instruction training
- Development of Electronic Training Platforms (Lessonly)
A clinical team comprising Liz Lefebre, MA BCBA, Laura Grant, MA BCBA, Danielle Pelz, M.Ed BCBA, Chrissy Barosky, MA BCBA, and myself is leading the development and implementation of these projects.
Finally, we’ve made great strides this year as a team. I am incredibly proud of our team and the great effort that gets put in every day. Let’s raise the bar and expand the scope of what’s possible with our kids.
Bierman Autism Centers is a place where kids as young as 18 months to 9 years of age engage in play to learn foundational skills they can build on, such as self-advocacy and communication. They recognize that every kid’s success is unique, and their one-on-one approach allows them to drive progress, and measurable outcomes, while each child is advancing on their own terms.
With over 200 graduations, Bierman currently has centers and is expanding in: Arizona, Indiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, and Rhode Island. For more about Bierman Autism Centers, visit www.biermanautism.com or call 800-931-8113.
