A Family’s Experience

We recently sat down with one of our wonderful families to learn about their experience with an early diagnosis and ABA therapy. Here’s what they shared!

Meet Angela, Doug and their family!

Do you recall a moment in which you first felt concerned about your child’s development prior to them being diagnosed with autism?

D: I didn’t see the signs initially, whereas Angela previously worked with kids so saw some delays. For example, he didn’t talk and didn’t respond to his name, but I wasn’t thinking Autism.
A: I didn’t think autism at all either, I honestly thought he was deaf – and then we got a hearing test and it was clearer that it was ASD or something else.

What were some of the first signs of autism that you noticed in your child?

A: Outside of language delays, we saw him putting two things together all the time, like me and Doug, toys, the swings and just thought it was a quirk he had that was sort of cute.

What was your experience in regards to your regards to your child receiving a diagnosis of autism? Did you first meet with an EI team, your pediatrician, etc.?

A: We got EI due to the language delays and when they first came in – our provider as pretty blunt about the potential of an ASD diagnosis which was honestly upsetting to have a label just thrown on him without formal assessment – it really threw me off. EI was a great resource to get us on the right track, but the 1:1 services weren’t enough for what G. needed, and what we needed as a family.

When we went to the Pediatrician, they gave list of phone numbers and referrals for ABA, but we found out quickly that you can’t get ABA without an ASD diagnosis. It truly felt like it was impossible to get him any services without a diagnosis. Our pediatrician is amazing but I don’t think they understood the full process (e.g. diagnosis, EI, ABA etc).

What was something you had difficulty with during that time?

A and D: Getting a diagnosis because it took forever. We attempted to go through Boston Children’s and it was tricky because it seems like they are overwhelmed with so many kids, and we knew we couldn’t wait.  Gino had a lot of behaviors at the start without his language, and he really needed the support so we got a referral for Touchstone, and while we had to pay out of pocket, we got the evaluation and were able to start getting more resources.

D: I really wish that there as a program for parents who are waiting for diagnosis just to get something that is more than EI – the hardest part was just waiting and feeling like you’re wasting precious time.

What was something that helped you during that time?

A: Getting the diagnosis was the most helpful looking back. I remember the day he got the diagnosis and feeling so relieved because it finally opened up the doors for getting the help our child needed after waiting for so long.

Did you know anything about autism prior to your child’s diagnosis?

D: Angela had worked with kids with ASD – but I think you don’t really know about it as well until its in your life. 

A: I didn’t know much about ASD except for what I saw at work, and really thought it was one specific thing – that my child would be a certain way. Which ended up not being the case!

Once you identified a specialty service provider, what were your expectations?

A: Our only expectation was that we just wanted to get him services ASAP. We didn’t know how to address the unsafe behaviors and his delays in language.  There was a lot of time we felt like we had no hope to help him be successful so we just wanted someone who could help.

Was your experience with ABA what you expected? How so?

A and D: We knew it would be intensive but we didn’t know how much progress he would make. Within the first month we felt we were listened to, supported and we saw progress with G! The amount of support we got was more than expected, all of his team members have been such a help and are invested in him. I thought he was going to head-banging and be hurting for the rest of his life – and now he has really opened his world and has come so far!

What is something you wish you knew before starting ABA?

A: That my family and kid were going to be okay and be supported. 

D: It’s going to take a lot from you as a parent, and you have to be involved and learn how to communicate differently –  it takes some patience, time, and understanding, but it’s okay because you’re going to get the support you need.

What is something you wish other people knew about Autism?

A: That it’s not scary- people tend to shy away and they look at them differently but just know they are full of life and my child is a sweet little boy.

Do you have any advice for parents who are just starting in Early Intervention?

D: Try and listen to your child and their needs and show them as much support as you can. Take in all of the resources and all of the help you can get to make your child more independent and successful and happy. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to other family members or others in the community ask questions or to get that support – there is so much different information it can be a lot and even be wrong based on your situation or providers. 

Lastly, we as parents need support too. We were really fortunate that we have the structure we do for G, but there are parents working full time, or that can’t be there 24/7 – it is important for them to take time to be with their child but also for themselves. It is so important to have a community around you so you can be successful.

5 Tips For Choosing the Right School for Your Child with Autism

For parents of children with autism, finding the best school for their child can feel overwhelming. They are faced with having to consider a wide range of different options for their child’s educational future that likely were not on their radar before such as school location, staff to student ratios,

teaching methodologies, peer groups and so much more. Luckily, throughout Massachusetts, there are many different programs and options available for children across the spectrum.

As the former Admissions Director for RCS Learning Center, I have had the opportunity to meet with many parents and experience different initial school tours and parent meetings. I always found it helpful when families came to the initial school visits with checklists, which included predetermined questions that they wanted to get answers to from the meeting. This allowed for more productive conversation and focus on their child’s specific needs and how they could be met within our school.

The statewide association for special needs schools, the Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools (maaps), has a wonderful checklist to use when collecting information about each school you visit. You can download the Special Education Program Checklist for Parents here. Use that list, along with these five tips to help choose the right school for your child with autism:

Personalize the form for you and your child. Before you even start to schedule school visits, go through the form highlight and detail any areas in which you know your child’s specific needs. For instance, if your child requires a full year program, highlight this area; if they require ABA therapy, indicate it in the Program Specifics section. If your child has any physical limitations make sure to indicate what environmental accommodations must be available to allow your child to be successful.

Determine your needs around school visits, observations, and other progress updates. The form does a nice job covering communication from the school to the parents and for good reason. While the focus is often on a child’s needs, a successful placement is also based on the program being able to meet the parent’s needs. Make sure you have a clear understanding of how the school will share information with you and vice versa. Also determine what type of training you may require as a parent to help your child generalize skills from school to home.

Conduct some initial online research. maaps has an online directory where you can search for schools and programs that are tailored to different student populations, including across the autism spectrum. You can narrow results by program type (residential, day, or summer), age range served, and geographic location. Visit the websites of each school and compare it to your form’s highlighted areas, which are your “must-haves,” to help you weed out programs that will not meet your child’s needs.

Tour several different schools. I always recommend having the first meeting to be with the school and the parents only as it is often a lot of information gathering to start. Once you have narrowed down your list, most schools are happy to accommodate a second tour or meeting, at which time it may be more appropriate to include your child. Take note of the children and staff within this environment. How do they interact, appear, engage? The form has ample space for you to jot down notes of cleanliness, space size, materials, etc. Be sure to tell your tour guide if there are times you would like to slow down or observe something more closely. Ask questions as you go or write them down for oneon-one discussions later.

Make sure you understand the program interventions and associated terminology. Following the tour, you will likely have a time to meet with the school staff. In addition to any “must haves” on the checklist, be sure to ask questions regarding any terms and policies the school staff use that you are not familiar with. There are many different types of interventions available for children with Autism but only a few that are established and supported by research. The National Autism Center released a report detailing the 14 established interventions for children with autism. This is a great resource to use to get familiar with the different types of interventions and understand which will be best for your child.

No matter which school you choose, with this preparation you can be confident your child with autism will get the excellent education that they deserve.

Behavior Analysts from RCS Learning Center Present at MassABA Annual Conference

 

Natick, MA., August 2, 2018 – With a focus on consultative services relating to evidence-based supervision practices, three professionals from RCS Learning Center in Natick recently presented at the Massachusetts Association for Applied Behavioral Analysis (MassABA) Annual Conference in Marlboro, MA.

RCS Learning Center Executive Managing Director Christina King, Ph.D, BCBA, LABA; Clinical Director Megan Breault M.S., BCBA, LABA; and Chief Clinical Specialist Colleen Yorlets, M.A., M.S., BCBA, LABA, presented on Providing Effective Consultative Services: A Review of Evidence Based Supervision Practices.  Topics discussed included Behavioral Skills Training and Competency Based Training, Performance Feedback, and Procedural Integrity.  

The tutorial for the conference, designed by the team of experts from RCS Learning Center, provided a review of recent literature covering evidence-based training and, the characteristics, types and effects of performance feedback. Strategies for overcoming barriers that professionals often face in training protocols were also discussed. King explained that the majority of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) serve in consultative roles and therefore, the responsibility is to train those who are implementing the protocol to competency. Effective training of direct staff is critical and ethically necessary, said King, and better procedural application and maintenance of treatment integrity is needed.

The Massachusetts Association for Applied Behavioral Analysis (MassABA) is a trade organization that represents the interests of behavior analysts in the state. Massachusetts has more BCBAs per capita than anywhere in America. As of January 2018, the Commonwealth has more than 2000 BACB certificants.

RCS LEARNING CENTER EXHIBITS AND PRESENTS AT ABAI CONFERENCE

Natick, MA., June 27, 2018 – Realizing Children’s Strengths Learning Center (RCS) in Natick, MA exhibited and presented at the recent Association for Behavior Analysis International 44th Annual Convention in San Diego, CA. Representatives and presenters included, RCS Chief Clinical Specialist, Colleen Yorlets, M.A., M.S., BCBA, LABA, Executive Managing Director Christina King, Ph.D, BCBA, LABA, and Clinical Director Megan Breault, M.S., BCBA, LABA.

The symposium, “Analyses of Equivalence-based Instruction Using Three Different Training Structures”, was chaired by Colleen Yorlets and included three studies presenting data from interventions on how to efficiently develop concepts in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  The first study, presented by Megan Breault, focused on a teaching procedure which resulted in a participant sorting multiple school store items into categories having only been taught to sort one example item. Christina King, presented the second study which focused on designing language-based interventions that resulted in untaught verbal behavior representative of concept formation.  Lastly, Colleen Yorlets presented data suggesting that learners emitted substantially more errors and formed fewer classes amongst stimuli with a trial-and-error protocol compared to an errorless learning protocol.
