Group ABA Therapy

Some skills are better taught and practiced in a group setting. When we have clients with similar goals and interests, we can arrange dyad and small group sessions, typically run in centre in a 1:2 ratio. If you would like to inquire about our current dyads/groups, we'd love to see if your learner would be a good fit to join in. The more the merrier! We offer wide range of groups, run by an ABA Therapist and supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst.

Our groups run in Sept-Dec, Jan-Apr, and May-Jun blocks. Most of our groups are capped at 2-4 participants, so spots are limited.

Group Programs

Intake Process

This is the first step in the intake process for group services at Best Behaviour. If you are an existing client or have worked with us in the past, please reach out directly. An intake form (as well as other portions of this intake process) may not be necessary.
Upon receipt and review of the completed intake form, we will follow up with you to share an update regarding available group 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 group services, we would continue with the registration process.
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.

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.

The senior team member will review the learner's file and reach out to schedule a group screening appointment, at no cost.
A group screening appointment is a 30-60 minute observation conducted by one of our senior team members. It is a chance for us to meet the learner and get to know them in a brief observation, to confirm the learner's fit in one of our groups. We will set up a variety of common group scenarios. We will also try to observe any relevant skill domains (ex. communication, social skills, play, independence etc.).
Group screening notes and a consent form may also be completed at this time.
If we have any reservations about the learner joining a group, we will try to offer alternative service options when possible.

A Group Registration Form will be shared with you. If a Medical Alert Form is applicable, that would be completed as well. Both of these forms can be completed electronically. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about these forms, or help you complete them over the phone.
Once your registration form has been completed and your registration fee is received, the learner's file will be set up shared with you and members of our senior team. This marks the beginning of your service agreement with Best Behaviour. Welcome!

The learner will begin attending their group services, as outlined in the registration form.
At the end of the group, a group summary report will be shared. The purpose of this report is to summarize the learner's goals to date and recommendations for next steps (including strategies to continue and any potential service extensions).


All registration forms must be submitted with a non-refundable $29 registration fee. This fee is designed to cover the cost of the time to register the learner for therapy (ex. coordinating schedules and team members, setting up the learner's file etc.).

Group sessions will be billed at an hourly rate of $60/hour. This applies to direct hours spent with the learner. Indirect hours will be factored into the hourly rate.

After the first group session, an invoice will be emailed for the full cost of the service block (including the first session). For example, if the group runs for 15 weeks, an invoice will be sent during Week 2 for the full 15 weeks.
