Upon consultation, the client will be scheduled for an assessment; an individualized program will be designed when the evaluation is completed. This evaluation covers the client's most socially significant behaviors, which are needed to decrease or strengthen.
Overall, program fidelity, consistency, and training empower the entire family to get involved, thus necessary for a significant change in the client's life.
Maribel has extensive experiences and qualification in the following disciplines:
Verbal Behavior (VB)
The approach focuses on developing each verbal operant (rather than on words and their meanings) and on the independent training of speaker and listener repertoires.
Skinner identifies seven verbal operants—echoic, mand, tact, intraverbal, textual, transcriptive, and copying a text—which functions as components of more advanced language forms. - M. Sundberg & J. Michaels
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
The approach focuses on socially significant behavior, manipulating environmental variables (with proper data collection) that would affect the client's behavior, which you would like to decrease or develop—a practical and applicable behavior technology.
Direct Instruction (DI)
DI is a teaching method using a detailed sequence of fast-paced instruction delivery, choral responding, and signaling.
Virtual Coaching (VC)
VC is a mode of providing distance supervision and ongoing online training for program implementation and career enhancement.
Empower and guide parents in establishing the client's missing repertoires, including pre-learning skills (eye contact; joint attention; sitting tolerance; attending and completing a simple task); communication and social skills.
Skills and Developmental Assessments utilizing valid and reliable assessment tools to help identify repertoires necessary for language acquisition, communication, social, and adaptive skills.
Empower individuals on a range of professional and personal issues, including setting measurable goals and providing self-monitoring strategies.
Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)
FBA is an indirect and direct observation of the problem behavior. A process of identifying possible patterns and function/s of problem behavior to replace it by teaching adaptive behaviors.
