We understand how overwhelming it can be to navigate a new diagnosis or your child's developmental milestones. There are many resources and supports available in the community to help, but it can be difficult to identify your child's individual needs.

Our team is available to complete a variety of different behaviour and skills assessments, to help you better understand your child's strengths and areas of need. Using a variety of direct and indirect assessment measures, we can help.

Assessments are chosen based on your child's needs. A variety of assessments are often completed to help gather a wide range of information to be used to develop a strong understanding of your child.

Our team does not currently have the capacity to complete diagnostic assessments.

Intake Process

This is the first step in the intake process for services at Best Behaviour.
Upon receipt and review of the completed intake form, we will follow up with you to share an update regarding available services. At this time, we are also happy to schedule a time to meet over the phone to answer any questions you may have about our services or ABA therapy.
If we are able to accommodate your service request and you decide that you would like to register for an assessment, we would continue with the registration process.

Your completed intake form will be passed on to one of our senior team members. They will schedule a 15-minute discovery call to further discuss ABA therapy, availability, and answer any questions you may.
The intake forms are also used to create our wait list, in the event that we are unable to meet your service request at this time.

Before beginning therapy, we will complete a full initial assessment. An Assessment Registration Form will be shared with you. Once your registration form has been completed and your fee is received, the assessment can begin. The initial assessment process includes the following steps:
a) Intake Meeting: The Clinical Supervisor will review the learner's file and reach out to schedule an intake meeting.
During the intake meeting, the goal is to get to know each other and put together a customized service plan. It is a chance for us to meet the learner and identify next steps regarding assessments and therapy goals. Intake meeting minutes and a consent form will also be completed at this time.
b) Assessment Sessions: After the intake meeting, appointments for any initial assessment sessions that need to be completed will be scheduled by the Senior Therapist.
c) Assessment Review: The assessment results will be summarized and a service plan will be prepared (ex. behaviour plan and/or behaviour protocol).
d) Behaviour Plan Meeting: The learner's behaviour plan and/or behaviour protocol will be shared in a meeting with the Clinical Supervisor and Senior Therapist. The purpose of this meeting is to review the assessment results, therapy goals, and a therapy plan.
e) Program Set Up: Once we've received consent to go forward with the plan, you will be asked to complete a registration form for your selected service. The necessary programs and materials will be prepared and therapy can begin.

If after reviewing the behaviour plan, you decide that you will no be proceeding with therapy, you are welcome to keep the learner's behaviour plan as a guide for any future therapy you may seek out.

Of course, there are going to be individual variations to this process based on the needs of the team member and/or learner. However, following this process will ensure evidence best practices are being considered at all opportunities.


Initial assessments are billed as a fixed one-time fee of $750 for all families, regardless of funding. This includes any direct and indirect hours associated with completing the initial assessment (ex. intake meeting, initial assessment sessions, preparing the learner's behaviour plan, meeting to review the behaviour plan, and preparing the learner's therapy programs/materials). The initial assessment process is explained in detail in Step 3 of the 'Intake Process' described above.

Upon receipt of your completed Assessment Registration Form, an invoice will be emailed for the full cost of the assessment. Once your registration form has been completed and your fee is received, the assessment can begin.
