One-to-One ABA Therapy
We provide focused and comprehensive services to create effective ABA programs for children and adolescents aged 2 to 17, and adults 18+.
An ABA therapist will work with the learner in home or community locations. Centre-based options are also available in Waterloo. All programs include initial and ongoing behaviour/skills assessments, individualized programs implemented by an ABA Therapist, and on-going supervision by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst.
Our one-to-one services are planed in 26-week service blocks, starting at 5-10 hours/week. An individualized service plan will be determined as part of the initial intake process.

One-to-one ABA services will be billed according to the following categories of direct service: assessment ($55/hr), consultation with professionals ($55/hr), senior supervision/consultation ($75/hr), clinical supervision/consultation ($105/hr), family/caregiver training ($55/hr), one-to-one ($55/hr), and team meeting ($55/hr). This applies to direct hours spent with the learner and family. Indirect hours associated with an initial assessment will also be billed. All other indirect hours will be factored into the other categories of direct service.
For families who are still receiving funding through legacy OAP behaviour plan budgets, categories of direct service will vary slightly and be capped at $55/hour (in line with the requirements outlined by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services).
An invoice will be emailed biweekly, totalling the bill for the previous bi-weekly billing period’s services. For example, an invoice will be sent on June 16th for the services provided June 1-14.
The following cancellation policy will be included in your One-to-One Registration Form:
I, the Parent/Guardian, understand that ...
In the event of a cancellation, I must notify the ABA Therapist(s), Senior Therapist, and Clinical Supervisor. Sessions cancelled twenty-four (24) hours in advance will not be billed. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, but it is not required.
Sessions cancelled within twenty-four (24) hours notice will be billed in full, as a Late Parent Cancellation. If possible, these hours will be used to benefit the learner’s programming.
If the learner is sick and the session is not cancelled, the Therapist may cancel upon arrival or end session early at their discretion and it will be considered a Late Parent Cancellation.
If the Therapist cancels a session for any reason, they will contact the Parent, Senior Therapist, and Clinical Supervisor as soon as possible. If the Therapist cannot arrange for the session to be covered by another team member, the session will be cancelled and will not be billed. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, but it is not required.
In the event of inclement weather, Best Behaviour Inc. reminds all clients and team members to travel by car only when it is safe to do so and when you do travel, allow for extra time, take care, and have caution on the roads. If the Therapist is unable to get to a session due to inclement weather, they may cancel the session. If it is a centre-based session and the centre is closed due to inclement weather, all parties will be notified. In both situations, the session will not be billed. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, but it is not required.
If the learner is late to a session, I am required to contact the Therapist. The session will not be extended to make up the missed time. The Therapist will wait fifteen (15) minutes if the learner is not there at the scheduled time, and then is allowed to leave and the session will be considered a Late Parent Cancellation. If the learner is not picked up when the session is finished, the extra time will be billed at the regular hourly rate.
If the Therapist is late to a session, they will contact me. The session will be extended to make up the missed time or the time will be deducted from the total session length.
Cancellations extending over five (5) consecutive days are considered an extended leave. At least two (2) weeks’ notice is required for extended leaves, changes in schedule, and any reduction in hours. This is to facilitate consistency in service delivery. This includes, but is not limited to, vacations and extended time off for holidays or summer camp. Payment for sessions not cancelled according to this policy will be required in full.
Sessions will not be held on the following statutory holidays: New Year’s Day, Ontario Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day.
I, the Parent/Guardian, understand that services may be terminated/withdrawn, giving 30 days’ notice in writing, by either party. During this time, learners are encouraged to attend each of their scheduled sessions to the best of their ability. This is to facilitate a smooth transition for the learner and team. New extended leaves will not be accommodated, without further extending the learner's 30 days' notice to make up the missed sessions. Payment for sessions not cancelled according to this policy will be required in full. If attendance falls below 75% of the learner's scheduled service intensity, payment for missed sessions may also be required in full.
