SPG’s Behavior Intervention team offers comprehensive services with the goal of minimizing challenging behaviors while maximizing skill acquisition.
One-to-One Student Support
Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) support students one-on-one during the school day by implementing evidenced-based, data-driven behavior treatment plans, under the close and ongoing supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
Once an RBT is assigned to a student in a district, they are supervised at least 10-15 hours per month by their BCBA supervisor, depending on the complexity of the case. RBTs are well versed in data collection, and are issued tablets/laptops for this purpose. All of SPG’s RBTs meet with our BCBAs every other week for case review and continuing education purposes.
SPG’s team offers the following types of assessments:
- Psychoeducational Evaluations
- Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs)
- Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs)
- Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs)
BCBAs oversee the implementation of indirect and direct services. Their specific responsibilities include:
- Designing and overseeing the implementation of Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs) and other related academic and behavior programs
- Creating materials necessary for targeting academic and behavior goals, such as visual schedules, first-then boards, token economy systems, reinforcements, etc.
- Providing initial training and ongoing analysis and consultation to support students and their school teams
- Analyzing and interpreting data and modifying plans accordingly
