Who is Skills For?
Skills® was created as a tool for any individual involved in the assessment and treatment planning of a child with autism. This could include professionals (ABA providers, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, physicians, etc.), school teachers, and parents. Skills was created with the aim of promoting a multidisciplinary approach in that everyone on a child’s treatment team is able to input data on the interventions they are implementing with the child and view their effects on learning all at once. It is highly recommended that at least one person on a child’s treatment team using Skills is a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) or equally qualified professional with a track record in designing ABA-based interventions for children with autism. The role of this individual is to design and direct the child’s curriculum program within Skills.
