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, unless a slightly larger group of 5-6 participants is appropriate. 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 to inquire about registering. 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, and schedule a Discovery Call.

Your completed intake form will be passed on to one of our senior clinical team members. They will schedule a 15-minute discovery call to further discuss group ABA therapy, availability, and answer any questions you may have.

If we are able to accommodate your service request and you decide that you would like to register for group services, we will connect you with the Group Supervisor to schedule a group screening appointment.

If it is determined that you will need to wait for services, your intake form will be saved and we will reach out to you when an opening comes available.

The Group Supervisor 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 in-centre. It is a chance for us to meet the learner and get to know them in a brief observation, and 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.

After the group screening appointment, 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 (if applicable), the learner's file will be set up shared with you and members of our senior clinical team. This marks the beginning of your service agreement with Best Behaviour. Welcome!

The learner will begin attending their group sessions, 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).

Pricing

If you are a new client registering for group ABA therapy, your 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.

Group sessions will be billed at an hourly rate of $70/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 group therapy program (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.
