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 planned 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.
For a more focused approach to skill building, take a look at our Parent Coaching and Consultations, starting at 2 hours/week.

Families receiving Core Clinical Services funding will have hours allocated across all of these categories. The amount of time allocated within these categories of service will be determined based on individual family and learner need, as well as any applicable budget constraints.
For families without Core Clinical Services funding, efforts will be made to only allocate hours within the primary service categories: one-to-one ($60/hr), senior supervision/consultation ($85/hr), and clinical supervision/consultation ($120/hr).
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 and will be billed in full.
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 or paid. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, but it is not required. If the centre is open, then it is expected that the learner will be attending their session. Sessions cancelled within twenty-four (24) hours notice, even as a result of inclement weather, will be billed in full as a Late Parent Cancellation.
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. The session will be considered a Late Parent Cancellation and will be billed in full. 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 five (5) consecutive calendar 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, time off while sick, holidays, vacations, summer camp etc. Payment for sessions not cancelled according to this policy may be required in full and considered a Late Parent Cancellation.
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. Extended leaves will not be factored into the 30 days, and 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 and considered a Late Parent Cancellation. If attendance falls below 75% of the learner's scheduled service intensity, payment for missed sessions may also be required in full.
