Focused Behavior Technician Services
When a targeted approach is necessary, OBAS recommends our focused behavior technician services. Your loved one with Autism will work one-on-one with a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) in your home or in the community as needed. Hours within this program typically range from 15 to 20 hours per week and are based on the outcome of an individualized assessment.
Comprehensive Behavior Technician Services
When a more intensive approach is necessary, OBAS recommends our comprehensive behavior technician services. Your loved one with Autism will work one-on-one with a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) in your home or in the community as needed. Hours within this program typically range from 20 to 40 hours per week and are based on the outcome of an individualized assessment.
For more information on focused and comprehensive treatment delivery models please refer to the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s (BACB) Applied Behavior Analysis Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder: PracticeGuidelines for Healthcare Funders and Managers. Pages 12 through 16 have detailed information on these delivery models.
Outcome Measure Assessment Services
At OBAS we work closely with TRICARE and Health Net Federal Services (HNFS) to quickly and efficiently complete needed outcome measure assessments for families. All beneficiaries participating in the Autism Care Demonstration must receive an outcome evaluation at baseline (within one year of initial diagnosis) and every two years thereafter while receiving ABA services.
As of Jan. 29, 2018, the Vineland, 3rd Edition (Vineland-3) and Social Responsiveness Scale, Second Edition (SRS-2) are the required outcome measures for this evaluation. The beneficiary’s physician primary care manager (P-PCM) or a TRICARE-authorized specialized autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosing provider can submit the referral for the outcome measures. Once the referral is in place with OBAS, we work quickly to get the job done! Please contact us or speak directly with the autism care team at HNFS for more information.
At OBAS we provide ABA services in a wide range of community locations. We accompany families into the community to provide necessary support and teaching to ensure their loved one with Autism can be as independent and successful as possible. We provide a comprehensive community-focused assessment as part of the initial evaluation process to ensure we are focused on developing the most socially significant skills. Each individualized treatment plan that is developed includes goals that focus on successful community integration.
Sometimes intensive one-on-one support is not necessary yet families still struggle with managing behavior problems or continuing to help their loved one with Autism develop necessary skills. When this is the case, OBAS provides direct support and consultation with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) at home or in the community. Consultation Services with our experienced BCBA’s can be highly flexable. Services are provided when and where you need them.
