Throughout all phases of treatment, consistent, ongoing and objective assessments will take place to ensure a comprehensive understanding of each individual’s baseline, present levels of performance and progress across environments. Assessments may include file reviews, parent or caregiver input, and indirect and direct assessments. An analysis of the information obtained through the assessments will serve as the basis for treatment recommendations.
