“Today was my family’s first time at Westside, and I have nothing but wonderful things to say. As a new parent this was the perfect place to go to talk to professionals about what my child needs to reach their full potential. All of the therapists eased my fears and comforted me.”
– The Currie Family

ABA School Consult Services

Westside provides staffing, training, and consultations to schools to support children with autism and other developmental conditions. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) may work with a specific child, classroom, or group of professionals to develop strategies that increase learning and and reduce problematic behaviors. Strategies incorporate the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a scientifically validated approach to understanding behavior.

Below are common supports that we provide to schools:

  • Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Functional Analysis (FA)
  • Challenging Behavior and Behavior Intervention Plans
  • 1:1 Support with ABA-trained BCBAs and RBTs

School Support – The Westside Way

We pride ourselves on providing BCBAs and RBTs that are actually familiar with the school environment. This has been key to our success in building trust. We send the right people that acclimate quickly.
It is critical that schools feel that our involvement is more of a collaboration than a consultation. That is why our staff aims to be listeners before recommenders. We start every partnership with the assumption that “we don’t know the answer yet.” This gives us space to focus on understanding your challenges and environment. Only with this context do we begin to collaborate to form recommendations. This is why our interventions have a lasting impact. They are tailored to the environment and are embraced by staff members.
