Consultancy Model Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention Program (ABA Therapy)
Our Consultancy Model is an early intensive behavioural intervention program for families who prefer a more cost-effective, self-managed approach to their child’s ABA therapy.
In this program, your family is responsible for recruiting and organising/timetabling and managing your child’s therapist team. Learning for Life consults your therapist team by creating your child’s therapy program and providing ongoing training for therapist team members, as well as ongoing consultancy and support.
It differs from our Full-Service Model, in which we manage the recruitment and organisation of your child’s therapy team for you.
The program helps your child to transfer learned language, social, play and cognitive skills to other functional environments, such as childcare, preschool, primary school and local community.
A personalised therapy program
As with our Full-Service Model, the Consultancy Model includes:
- a custom therapy program based on your child’s individual needs;
- organisation of all therapy sessions;
- ongoing supervision;
- fortnightly meetings with families to review and adjust the therapy program;
- ongoing training for parents in ABA strategies for reinforcement and skills transfer; and
- optional access to peer-to-peer parent network (currently trialling).
Families choose this model when they have sufficient resources and support to run the program themselves.
Our preferred program for rural Victorian families
Our Consultancy Model is our program of choice for extending our early intervention support into rural Victoria. With L4Life providing the design and supervisory support, and the family recruiting and organising their therapists locally, this model is cost-efficient for both rural families and L4Life.
