Caregiver-training focus, usually less than 6 hours per week
Our consult services focus on children whose behavior is limiting or preventing them from accessing full school days. The aim is to reduce barrier behaviors and increase tolerance of full school days.
Who is a good fit for consult services?
If you are looking for someone to help you understand how to manage problem behavior and are worried about your child's school behavior, this service might be best fit for you. If your child is not in need of intensive services at 10 or more hours per week, they might be best served through our consult service.
How are the consult visits structured?
Services begin with a thorough Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and a treatment plan is developed. Consult visits are largely scheduled in the environment the concerning behavior occurs, but sometimes may be able to be addressed in the center. A Behavioral Skills Training model is followed that involves teaching, role play and feedback until the skills are mastered by the parents or caregivers.
How long does the consult last?
Consult services are typically shorter in duration, lasting 3-6 months.
How is the service funded?
ABA services are often covered in whole or part by commercial insurance
or ForwardHealth. Insurances may have different requirements as to what
diagnoses will qualify for ABA coverage. Arrow Academy is happy to check your
insurance benefits, but cannot guarantee coverage of ABA services.
How do I begin?
Families who are interested in consult services can simply call the center to be added to our current wait list. We will then reach out to you when staffing is available and will obtain or help you obtain all necessary documentation to begin services. Our wait list varies and is largely dependent on available staff. We make every attempt to hire qualified candidates regularly.
