Skills Assessments

Every child we assess is unique and has varying skills. The first step in developing a program that concentrates on the specific needs of the child is assessing their current abilities and deficiencies. The assessment involves a combination of direct observation of the child, interviewing parents, teachers, and standardized measurements.

A report is written based on the results of the assessment in order to identify the child’s current skill level, behavior excesses and deficits. The report also includes individualized program recommendations and goals. Once the report is reviewed with the family and/or client, services can begin.

IABAS for Families uses the following assessments to customize and create individualized programs tailored to the patient: VB MAPP, Essentials for Living, Socially Savvy, Peak, ABLS, and AFLS. Each patient is reassessed with the Vineland yearly and reassessed using criterion-based assessment at the end of each authorization period.

The criterion-based reassessment allows the clinical team to select goals that should be added and worked on in the patient’s treatment plan. When reassessed at the end of each authorization period, the assessments are updated and added to the patient’s progress report with new proposed goals based on assessment results. Treatment recommendations are made in partnership with patients and caregivers. Patients and caregivers should be able to review the assessment findings and the treatment goals in the report. A patient’s progress in treatment is measured by progress toward goals and the patient’s ability to function in their natural settings.

The anticipated outcome for IABAS for Families for providing in-home services is to address socially significant behaviors for the patient and work towards independence in their immediate environment while reducing challenging behaviors. These skills are then generalized across people and different environments while reducing and replacing challenging behaviors. Communication is an area that is extensively assessed for each patient using a criterion-based assessment.
