Initial Meeting

An initial consultation is a complete review of documents and a detailed interview with an ARISE clinician. An individualized comprehensive Plan of Action is developed which could include future assessments and evaluations, school/work meetings, specialized ABA-based treatment at home and/or other settings, parent teaching/consultation and follow-up and accountability services.


ARISE provides comprehensive evaluations in the areas of Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA) and other areas of ABA. Written reports emphasize learning strengths and challenges and provide detailed recommendations. Feedback and follow-up are built into the evaluation process to ensure the findings and recommendations are understood, useful, and effective in developing a long-term action plan. Our goal at ARISE is to disseminate the principles of ABA to support the generalization process for our clients.
