Assessments

An assessment of your child’s skill level and/or behavioral needs is necessary to guide the development of an individualized treatment plan. All assessments are conducted by a NYS Licensed Behavior Analyst/Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and include the use of various assessment tools.

Sparta Center Model

The SPARTA Center, in New York, USA, offers a unique comprehensive approach to the conventional center-based approach.
The SPARTA program begins at the student’s home in the morning, and focuses on assisting them to complete activities of daily living (ADL) skills, such as personal hygiene routines, independently dressing, and making a simple breakfast, utilizing a digital motivational system and photographic/written activity schedule. After the morning routine is completed, the student will travel to the SPARTA Center with their therapist and complete multiple activity schedules for the remainder of the day, while also working on their individualized treatment goals. After returning home, the student will have a break before their after-school ABA program begins. Students then work on completing their afternoon activity schedule and evening/nightly routines such as eating dinner, learning to bathe and get ready for bed.
