Treatment plans may be developed to either decrease a problem behaviour and teach replacement behaviours, or to increase the rate or frequency of pivotal responses such as communication skills and social skills, which are necessary for successful daily living. Treatment plans include the following components:

  • Individualized to each child and their specific needs
  • Incorporates the child's strengths and gifts
  • Developed collaboratively with the family and other team members
  • Provide a structured step by step procedure for implementation
  • Implemented across the child's natural environments


Monitoring and Evaluation

In some cases where goal achievement has not been obtained, program evaluation may lead to re-assessment and program modifications. Program monitoring is undertaken in a variety of ways including:

  • On-site visits to observe behaviours and programs being implemented in the natural environment
  • Objective data collection and analysis, including charting progress
  • Meetings with team members to troubleshoot and discuss goal achievement
  • Regular telephone contact to follow-up
